About Us


Winner of the UK Independent Bookshop of the Year Award 2019, Golden Hare Books is based in Stockbridge, Edinburgh. 

We’re proud to be a business where love and appreciation for book design is reflected throughout the shop. This is why every detail is given thought and careful attention, from our bespoke layout by design team Mill & Jones to each book we place on our shelves.

You can’t always judge a book by its cover but we want the aesthetics of our selections to stir our customers’ curiosity, so we’ve styled the shop to have as many outward facing books as possible. We make sure these are always changed regularly, so you’re guaranteed a completely fresh selection on each visit!

Offering new extras like our subscription service Post Books and our consultation service LitFix, we’re constantly trying to find new ways to offer our customers something exciting and appealing. Another example of this is Book Fringe, our collaboration with fellow independent Lighthouse Books that brings world-class writers to Edinburgh throughout August. And the best thing about it? All tickets are completely free!


The Golden Hare events board is always updated with our most recent (and exciting) events!

Collaborating with local businesses and local authors is one of our passions. We are constantly trying to think of new ways to reach out and include the wider community, whether that’s other bookshops, readers or authors.

Come and visit us at our Stockbridge store; we’re always eager to have a chat about good books!
