A destination shop in the heart of Linlithgow, Far From The Madding Crowd is primarily a bookshop. Specialising in children's and Scottish books, most other genres are also available and there is a wide selection to browse from over two floors. The shop is the only one in the area stocking Seasalt clothing; and there is a large selection of jewellery including exclusive Scottish designers like Paula Bolton. Far From The Madding Crowd also stocks stationery, gifts, art supplies, toys and a huge range of cards & wrapping paper for every occasion. Throughout the year the shop runs a varied events programme catering to both young and old. They have a small events space in the shop, the Book Bothy, available for outside rent. Regular story-telling sessions in the Bothy take place every Saturday morning at 11 – BB & Hardy the rabbit and guinea pig who live at the shop make excellent story-tellers!
