The name means ‘song of the gael’. Carmina Gadelica is a specialist bookshop.

We offer a great range of books including Outdoor Pursuits, Natural History and Maps to help you make the most of our breath-taking island, as well as a large range of books on Scottish History and Culture. There are books here in Gaelic, including poetry, novels, and learners texts, but most of the stock is in English. You will also find a selection of local and traditional music and artists’ materials for when the mood takes you to capture and interpret some Skye scenery for yourself! Our passionate and informed booksellers are always on hand to provide you with great new books whatever your interest.

The bookshop is near the top of the hill up from the pier in Portree.
