Local bookshops for new books, rare and secondhand books in KW15


The Orcadian Bookshop

50 Albert St, Kirkwall KW15 1HQ, UK – 01856 878000

I was hoping there would be a good bookshop in Kirkwall and I was not disappointed. The shop is quite large and you can take your time to peruse the books, maps that they sell. I bought two books one to encourage me to get out walking next time I visit. The other was to do with Scapa Flow and the brave who lost their lives during the war.

Well stocked "proper" bookshop. They had the maps we sought, also. Excellent

This is my favourite secondhand bookshop in the world. The selection is amazing and the prices very reasonable indeed. The owner is incredibly knowledgeable, there are few books he doesn't know of and if he doesn't have what you want chances are he will be able to get it for you. It's next to the library. Check it out!!!

My favourite shop in Orkney, very knowledgeable owner, great range of books, I always look forward to my visit every year!
