The newest bookshop in Wigtown, Beltie Books opened in July 2013. In a delightful combination, an eighteenth century drawing room forms the bookshop, which is a front - both literally and metaphorically - for a spacious, airy, bright café and gallery.
An eclectic selection of books with an increasing focus on local and Scottish interest and history rewards the careful browser.
We will also buy books.
Fantastically good coffee and tea from a boutique merchant in Aberdeen compliment a small but fine menu of cakes and light meals, made on the premises, mainly from local ingredients, some grown in the garden where visitors can enjoy the sunshine - weather permitting, of course.
