In the heart of Edinburgh there is a bookshop that is independent, ecumenical and inclusive. We provide spiritual, pastoral and theological resources for people throughout Scotland and beyond. We also stock a wide range of cards, gifts and church supplies. Cornerstone has a welcoming atmosphere with space to browse in peaceful surroundings and is run by a team of dedicated staff and volunteers who aim to provide a friendly and knowledgeable service.

New books come into the shop every day. Please visit or contact us to find out about the large variety of titles we have in stock. We can also order books for you and are happy to post items if you cannot get to us to pick up your order.

If you know us already we hope you will come back and see us soon. If you haven’t yet visited us, we look forward to welcoming you to Cornerstone.

The weather this afternoon is just the kind that makes you want to sit down in a cosy corner with a good book. We can provide both, so don't be stuck out in the rain! ...

Big crowds gathered outside the shop this afternoon... Tourists hoping to get a snap of the Portakabin?? No, it turns out they had come to see the arrival of Prince Charles and Camilla at the Caledonian Hotel. Ah well! ...

The sun is shining and the door is flung wide to welcome delegates of the General Synod of the Scottish Episcopal Church to our evening reception. Sponsored by publishing group #HymnsAncientAndModern, there is wine, there are nibbles and, of course, lots of lovely books to tempt them! ...

We've had lots of folk in the shop today. Many who come are surprised to find out we get new stock arriving most days. Shelving the books is a constant adventure! ...

Well, it's been a good General Assembly for us. Returns are all processed and awaiting uplift. Just waiting for the couriers and making the most of the sunshine trying to spot our Portakabin in the distance! ...
