The Bookish Delights of Stirling

  • Submitted: 11th September 2022

The Bookish Delights of Stirling

Bloody Scotland is on for four days. LOTS of books to be bought and read during this time. There is of course a festival bookshop on site BUT don’t forget these two bookish delights whatever you do.

Bookshops of Stirling


What a perfect name for a haven of bookish loveliness. I love the story behind this store.  Two friends who met at Stirling University, graduated in 2016 with a dream to open a bookstore. The doors opened in September 2020 so it’s their second anniversary! All the more reason to go in and say hello whilst buying a book or two. They sell both new and second hand AND cake AND coffee so what are you waiting for?

The Book Nook is intended to be a casual and cosy space for people across all stages of life to immerse themselves in the comfort of fictional stories with a good cuppa.

This lovely place is currently closed and hopes to reopen in April, but you can go for book drop-ins and for deliveries for now.

It’s described as a second-hand bookshop which specialises in rare and antiquarian books. They talk about a ‘rustic bookshop experience’ which seems to involve a good cup of coffee, a cosy sofa and a selection of unique curiosities.

I really hope this shop opens soon as I would LOVE to go and spend time there. It sounds idyllic so please open again soon. You can order books from them on line here.
