Over £420k raised for our charities since 2006


Summer  Hours

We are open 9.00am to 4.30 pm Mon to Sat from 1st April


Volunteers from the Bookshop met with representatives from CHAS this afternoon (and Robin the mini Hairy Highland Coo) to celebrate the Bookshop raising over £70,000 (£73, 219 to be precise) for CHAS, one of the six charities we support. It was interesting to hear how the money raised helps children with life-shortening conditions and their families. A huge thank you to our volunteers, people who donate books and people who buy books !


Podcast: History of Pitlochry Station Bookshop 

Our volunteers past and present all have a story to tell which feed into the history of Pitlochry Station Bookshop.  Twelve of these have been captured in a series of podcasts.

The interviews are a fascinating account of how a small community enterprise for charity was established and how different people contributed their experience for the benefit of others.

Thanks go to Bookshop volunteer, Viv Cree, whose idea this was and who conducted the interviews and to Heartland FM for technical support.
