Alba specialises in books on Scotland, children’s books, natural history, gift titles and maps. We are also the official stockist of OS in Scotland. We supply titles from across a full UK range of suppliers with the aim to supply the best in quality. Our range is regularly refreshed with the best new material we can find coming out and we provide a comprehensive sales coverage of Scotland with a team of four. We provide competitive discounts and a friendly and efficient service backed by many years of sales experience.

Alba is owned by Birlinn Ltd, Scotland’s key publisher for the Scottish trade and gift market, but our list is deliberately chosen to cover top quality titles wherever we can find them. With almost thirty years’ experience in the market place we know that the Scottish visitor and gift market has changed radically and moved upmarket. Customers want fresh modern titles published to the highest standards, with a changing and varied range. This is what we are proud to provide.
