Visit our unique bookshop at Pitlochry Station

Our customers donate their unwanted books and we sell them on, usually for £1 per volume. Our unique arrangements with ScotRail mean that every penny from our book sales goes straight to our six charities.

Now we are selling books online

Choose from our selection of books on salmon fishing. Or make an offer for the set. See below.

As Covid restrictions have forced our closure again, so we have turned to selling books through the internet.

Last month, we sold a collection of motor racing books for £210 – a fantastic bonus in what has been a difficult year.

We now have a collection of aircraft books for sale, and a smaller number of very special books on salmon fishing – just right whether you can get out into the countryside or prefer to read by a warm fire!

Send us an email if you’d like to make an offer for one or all five – pitlochrystationbookshop@gmail.com
