Local Bookshops


31B, Fort Kinnaird, Edinburgh EH15 3RD, UK – 0131 344 4754

This is a new but rather small branch of Waterstones. As usual all the bookshop staff are book fanatics and often go the 'extra mile' to help a customer. Very popular with kids spending pocket money or gift tokens. Coffee shop competes well with the "multies"- good range of drinks and snacks and friendly staff. It's usually a peaceful place to contemplate a purchase or start a book just purchased.

Love Waterstones..great book choices. Perfect pit stop while browsing..excellent coffee and choice of sandwiches , the all important Loo!! Also..however not least..Friendly helpful staff.
