The Book and Card has been run by the Johnston Family since 1985. Now into its third generation, we continue to stock Arran's news, gift, book and stationery essentials and offer a friendly service to visitors and locals alike. We are proud to be an independent bookseller-- one of the last in North Ayrshire.
The Book and Card is a must-visit stop for tourists and day trippers meandering along Brodick's shore front, offering a wide selection of books, toys, postcards and Arran products year-round.
Since October 2019 we have been home to Brodick's Post Office. Please see the Post Office website for more details about what services we offer.
We are home to Arran Baby Equipment Hire, making family holidays to Arran that much easier!
We also sell tickets for local events.
