Timberbooks is an independent high-street bookshop in West Kilbride, North Ayrshire, Scotland. Established in 2007, we now operate from a Victorian church and church hall called Overton, bought from the Church of Scotland in 2013.
We sell quality new, second-hand and antiquarian books and book-related items. We strive to support local authors and publishers.
If you can't find the book you're looking for here, please check our other website www.timberbooks.co.uk or e-mail us at [email protected] and we'll happily undertake a complimentary book search for you.
#TheBritishBookAwards Timberbooks was selected as a Country Finalist for 'Independent Bookshop of the Year' by The British Book Awards 2021.
COVID-19 update: We are delighted to advise that our high street shop has now re-opened on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays from 1pm to 5pm. Private shopping appointments are also available outwith these times. We look forward to welcoming you back!
Update June 2021: With our commission since we joined Bookshop.org in November 2020 we've bought 20 new - extra! - bookcases and more PPE supplies for our shop. We've also been able, at last, to commission a new boiler for the shop - so you're assured of a warm welcome! All this has been made possible by you choosing to support us here - THANK YOU so much.
