I knew that the little town of Aberfeldy, our home base in Scotland, had a bookshop in a converted watermill.
Today. I found this website. Books. Over 5000 books. Coffee. Art Gallery. Music.
Browsing Encouraged. Woodstove.
Winner Scottish Independent Bookshop of the Year.
Within walking distance of our temporary home.
Go to the Link and click on the Virtual Tour.
The kindness of our God is overwhelming.
Let It Rain.
All Day Long.
My lips are numb.
The Gallery is beautiful-I’m glad there’s extra lights for those rainy days!
The whole place is so perfect- classic, but without shame when displaying the necessary modernisms.
I’ll bet the owners are treasures, too! Happy meeting to you!
Oh, can I stow away in your luggage? How wonderful – I am so happy that you get to take this trip!
Oh, me, oh, my! What will Curt do with the three days it takes you to fully roam this place? Plus remember how heavy books are to carry from place in your luggage…of course, you could just spend all two weeks sitting and reading there! I really love the set-up of the cafe, w/ the really comfortable-looking sofas and all. Bless you!
I meant, “from place to place…”
Enjoyed the tour. Now I want to see a picture of you, sitting in one of those overstuffed chairs reading Burns and drinking coffee. K?
Or better yet, ask the owners lots of questions with the idea of setting up a shop like this yourself. You would make a terrific bookshop owner 🙂
I have heard about a new bookshop opening in the Atlanta area this Spring. The shopkeeper is the historian William Potter of Vision Forum fame. It seems that it may have this type of atmosphere 🙂
Absolutely stunning! I sent the link to two of my daughters to drool over, and can’t wait for their responses. Btw, one of them was here this morning, and telling me about the music and art programs in Japanese schools. It seems that in Japan the people understand the connection between education in music and art, and the development of discipline and a work ethic. Would that were true in America!
Wow! What a treasure in a land of treasures!
I know that’s within walking distance but other treasures may not be. If you plan to access the trains, this link might be of help to you? Possibly, I don’t know if it’s open to tourists but if you are interested, you can check.
Carol, this looks like the kind of place I could spend days in! What a great find.
Thanks for stopping by today and saying hello–it was good to hear from you!www.mindywithrow.com
WOW. That’s all i can say! What a perfect thing for your trip– and like i like to say to friends, “God is good! Well, of course He’s good ALL the time, sometimes He’s just better.” (tongue in cheek of course.)
Oh how fabulous! I shall visit vicariously through you when you are there! By the way, my post today (Tuesday) was written with you in mind! Blessings, Laurie
Amazing. I cant’wait to see a picture of you, reading and drinking coffee in front of that woodstove. So excited for you!Sandy
