Leakey’s Bookshop

Opening Times
Mon-Sat - 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM
Sun - Closed

THE place to visit in Inverness for anyone who likes books! Scotland's largest secondhand bookshop. Complete with open log fire and just about any book you could think of.

The 'shop' is actually a church - the huge old Gaelic Church at the end of Church Street, one street back from the river, about 5 - 6 minutes walk from the Castle and Tourist Info.

Leakey’s Bookshop was established in 1979 and has been housed for the last 26 years in the old Gaelic Church (1793). It is Scotland’s largest secondhand bookshop with 100,000 selected volumes. We have been actively buying books throughout the Highlands for over 40 years – buying that has been immensely exciting and fruitful.
The wood burning fire that heats the shop has filled many customers with amazement and some with dread. If you come to Inverness, Leakey’s will be one of the highlights of your visit.
We are currently trading online through AbeBooks. The online listings consist exclusively of interesting and unusual books, many of which are seldom seen. Browse our online catalogues at via the web address
