About The Orcadian Bookshop

Here at The Orcadian Bookshop we are passionate about all things books, especially our extensive range of Orkney-related fiction and non-fiction titles. In addition to our vast selection of local books, we also stock a large range of fiction, ranging from the classics to the latest best-sellers. 

We also have shelves full of history, nature, cookery and children’s and young adults’ books to mention a few. If you can't find a title you are looking for, please ask one of the friendly members of our team, either in store, by telephone or via email. If we don't have what you are looking for in stock, we can order books directly from our supplier and even arrange to have them posted directly to you.

Our shop is located on Albert Street, just down the road from St. Magnus Cathedral, in the heart of Kirkwall’s historic city centre. If you are in Orkney please pop in, have a browse and say hello. We would love to see you. And, if you are unable to visit us in person, please browse our website, give us a call or email us with any enquiries.
