Book shop own­ers share busi­ness savvy with au­thor

The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition) - - NEWS -

A Scots au­thor has teamed up with the own­ers of The Water­mill Book­shop in Aber­feldy to bring an in­de­pen­dent book­store back to Fort William for the first time since the war.

Angus Mac­Don­ald is be­hind The High­land Book­shop, which will take up a long-empty unit in the High­land town. Best­selling au­thor Alexander McCall Smith will of­fi­cially open the shop on July 14, but it is to the Water­mill’s Kevin Ra­m­age – who re­cently saw his busi­ness voted one of the world’s best – that Mr Mac­Don­ald turned for ad­vice.

Kevin said: “This is In­de­pen­dent Book­shop Week and we thought this was the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to let peo­ple know that there is a bright fu­ture for shops like this on the High Street.”
