About Boreas Books

Boreas Books is an online bookstore situated in the Orkney Islands archipelago just off the north coast of Scotland. We are based in a converted water mill on the small island of South Ronaldsay. We stand at the head of Widewall Bay overlooking a seal-strewn skerry and a panorama of open water, enfolding headlands and distant scattered islands.
