Ordering Service

We access the databases of both Scotland and the UK’s largest book wholesalers to find the books you need, with information on over 5 million titles.

Of course, there are still those ‘hard-to-find’ titles, don’t worry, we can often track those down using our specialist knowledge and our contacts with many publishers, big and small.

We can often find out-of-print titles too, so don’t be shy just ask!

Order in the shop, by phone, or by email, your orders are delivered to the shop within two days. We’ll contact you to confirm that the order is ready for collection. There’s no extra charge for this, there are no postage charges; it’s all part of the service.

Can’t make it to Bookpoint? Need a present delivering to a friend? We can arrange delivery for a small additional charge.

You can now shop at Bookpoint online!

A Community Bookshop

We love it when Bookpoint becomes more than a book store. We see it as a social hub and a resource for the great communities in Dunoon and Cowal.

Perhaps you’d like to advertise your charity event in one of our windows. We have a window display of posters for upcoming events and clubs, for a local gig or gala.

On top of that we hold a wide range of author events in the shop – or in the Queen’s HallDunoon Burgh Hall and nearby Uig Hall.
