Arts, Crafts and Books

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! Check out their Facebook & Twitter feeds for regular updates on what’s going on at this charming, busy shop.

The Linlithgow Art Collective is a group of Artists, Illustrators, Architects and Designers either living in or originating from Linlithgow. Currently based as a business at The Linlithgow Centre for Contemporary Arts, its goal as an Arts Collective is to create and maintain a sustainable platform for the arts in Linlithgow. The Gallery acts as an exhibition and workshop space, where the collective members and other artists and designers are invited to exhibit work and to run projects. There are also regular workshops run for all ages, some tailored specifically towards supporting students towards secondary, further and higher education. All projects at the gallery are coordinated or run by MD Peter J Scott, who is the founder member of the Art Collective and the Linlithgow Centre for Contemporary Arts.
