Leaky's is a very cool old used book store. Large selection and neat to see a true bookstore still in business and doing well!!!

As a family of book lovers we were looking forward to this. We knew from the frosty reception when we entered with our toddler that it wasn't going to be the enjoyable hour followed by an exit with armfuls of books that we were looking for.

Our toddler loves books and we've taught him to treat them well. He was excited, and took two books (A Brief History of Hungary and The Political Economy of Slavery, in case you're interested) off the shelf and looked through them. Within seconds the owner (I presume) had appeared. "If he wants to practice taking books on and off the shelves," he said, "he can do it with HIS books at home, not with MY books."

I was astounded. How unbelievably rude. If the owner (I presume) didn't want our son to look at the books there are polite ways of saying so, this was a shocking example to set and (ironically) a demonstration of childish selfishness.

Now, I know what you're thinking; this parent couldn't possibly think that his little darling was behaving badly when, in fact, he was. I know, I would think the same on reading this review. But our son treats books well; if we had any reason to think he wouldn't, we wouldn't have let him take a book. If he had damaged a book, we would have bought it.

Such behaviour from the owner (I presume) sets a shocking example for a child to follow in terms of treating others with respect. It also puts children off books - surely we should be encouraging our next generation of readers.

We didn't get to look at much of the shop in the three minutes we were permitted to stay, but the books were wildly over-priced. £10 for a second-hand copy of a Harold Wilson biography?!? Good thing we didn't need to purchase A Brief History of Hungary...

I have wanted to visit for years after three visits to Inverness and they were closed, I finally got to visit last week. It is amazing, it actually takes your breath away when you walk through the door. It is a book lovers dream to wander around taking it all in. However, the prices are a bit high on some books. I understand the older and rarer books being expensive, but when you pull out a well worn modern paperback that is widely available in other second hand situations and it costs £4.50 I think that is a little excessive. I can understand them wanting to maximise profits due to popularity, but I am sure they would sell much more if they were slightly less in price. As other people have said check online retailers as they are much cheaper than here.

Having said that, there is no pressure to buy anything, you can just visit and take in the wonderful atmosphere of the place, the staff are lovely. Its a very beautiful place indeed and well worth a visit if you are a book lover.

This was a book lovers dream. There were so many books, it's hard to figure out where to start so we just started by the front door and worked our way around (that was the mystery section first which is my favorite). The atmostphere was wonderful and I wished there were room for a few chairs so I could rest while taking it all in. I'm sure they don't want to have a cafe in there but I would have stayed longer and purchased many more books if there had been one. This is a must visit while in or around Inverness.

If you have any interest in books, or charming buildings, would recommend popping in for a browse and to take the space in. A wealth of books - feels like a library that could rival any great library found in any book!

I think I just found where books from the library of the Unseen University or Hogwart's go on holiday. A bookshop that all other secondhand bookshops could aspire to.

Very nice to look at with a nice atmosphere but would find it difficult to recommend this to fiction fans, much more of a non-fiction bookshop.

I've been visiting Leakeys for years and before they even moved into their stunning old church. I've also bought many books from them but on the advent of the Internet, not so much. Quite simply their prices are well above what you can get them online. Great for a browse but check each book against ebay etc before handing over your cash !

Excellent and amazingly wide stock. Prices are not the cheapest for second hand books but then there are high quality books here. Too many books to take in honestly! Definitely worth a browse.

I thought the prices were fair, but I was very confused by the order in the shelves and gave up. Maybe I just don't understand how it is organised.
