23rd / 30th MARCH: TEMPORARILY CLOSED, NO NEW ORDERS CURRENTLY ACCEPTED, BUT WE WILL RETURN.
The Ullapool Bookshop is situated on Quay Street, Ullapool, right in the heart of the village, beside Lochbroom Hardware and The Captain’s Cabin (Ullapool gift shop and Scottish crafts) and is very close to the Harbour and Ferry Terminal. The Bookshop, Captain’s Cabin and Lochbroom Hardware are all owned by the same family run business. The Bookshop is open 7 days a week all year round, please check our Opening Hours for seasonal opening variations and we very much look forward to welcoming you.
The Ullapool Bookshop is an Independent Bookshop and is member of the Booksellers Association and offers a wide selection of Books, Greeting Cards, Maps, Postcards, and National Book Tokens. Please see our About page for further details of our Stock. Enquiries are also welcomed and we very much look forward to hearing from you.
Ullapool Bookshop has just launched a new Ullapool Trading website for niche books, cards and gift sales online.
Within the Bookshop itself we accept Visa, MasterCard, Amex, Visa Debit, MasterCard Debit, National Book Tokens and obviously cash or cheques too.
- Home Delivery postponed
Here at Ullapool Bookshop we had hoped to be able to trial a home delivery system, whereby books could be ordered via a Home Delivery service supported by our main Distributors and sent to you via Royal Mail. However, it has now become clear that this is not possible at the moment. Our hope is that this could start at some time in the near future, and if so, we will inform you as soon as possible.
Thank you so much for all of your continued support for the Ullapool Bookshop and for independent bookshops nationwide.
Katharine Douglas, Ullapool Bookshop Manager

- World Book Day fun at the Ullapool Bookshop
We were thrilled to welcome classes from Ullapool Primary School to Ullapool Bookshop on Thursday 5th March. In total 6 different groups come and we had 113 World Book Day vouchers which were redeemed in total in one day, surely a new record for the bookshop. Clearly a lot of effort and thought had gone into the day, we saw some fabulous outfits from teachers and children alike and the final group were even treated to storytime from the Bookshop Manager too! Here are a couple of photos from the day.
