We are Scotland’s leading wholesaler for Scottish books and maps – a service we have provided to the trade since 1984. With more than 35 years’ experience sourcing and supplying the best selection of titles to meet our customers’ needs, we now carry our largest ever range of products to supply our varied range of trade accounts.


Wholesale Services to Our Customers


From newsagents, post offices and bookshops, to tour operators, heritage centres and visitor attractions, and just about every kind of retailer in between, we can create a range to meet all needs. We work closely with our customers to find the right products for you – using our wealth of experience in the market and your aims and aspirations for your business.

At the core of our wholesale range is Scottish interest product aimed at the tourism and heritage market. We carry an extensive selection of books and maps in our catalogue from all major UK publishers, a vast array of independent publishers and from self-published authors. We also offer a special order service to supply almost any book for any customer – as long as it’s in print and available to UK wholesalers.

In addition to books, we are the leading wholesaler in Scotland for maps, calendars, postcards, greetings cards, fridge magnets, puzzles and toys. We are an approved Ordnance Survey wholesaler and stock the full range of Scottish OS Landranger and Explorer maps. We also carry maps from all other major cartographers. Our exclusive Lyrical Scotland ranges of postcards, greetings cards and magnets consistently lead the market and we bring out new designs across the range every year to reflect current trends. We have two best-selling ranges of calendars – our recognisable multi-buy Lomond Calendar range and our regional Lyrical Scotland range – and in toys and jigsaws we carry lines from the biggest UK brands including Gibsons Games, Ravensburger and Ackerman International.

So whatever your product needs are, we are sure to have something just right for you. You can find more information about the publishers and brands we wholesale for by looking at our Publisher page here and more information on our trade customer services on the Our Service page here.
