Edinburgh Shopping

Edinburgh is not just for the history and culture buffs. Visitors can find many great things to purchase while enjoying Edinburgh shopping.

Shopping Centers and Avenues

With so many options, you may wonder where to begin. Try the Livingston Designer Outlet, which is a prime Edinburgh shopping destination. Can you imagine finding designer labels at fifty percent discount? It’s a shopper’s dream! You’ll see names like Armani Collection, Fat Face, and many others.

Multress Walk is not a mall, but a stylish boulevard with chic and trendy boutiques. It’s the location of the acclaimed Harvey Nichols Department Store. If you’re in need for a break, head up to the fifth floor and catch a glimpse of the fantastic cityscape. Some of the shops include names like the Pen Shop, Anne Fontaine and Dior.
You’re within walking distance from all the attractions of George Street. This is yet another superb example of Edinburgh shopping.

In the center of the city, you’ll find St. James Shopping Center. It’s the perfect choice for buying knitwear, jewelry, sports wear and other goodies for the family. Charge your shopping batteries at Costa with a sublime cup of coffee or try the restaurants at the food court. There is plenty of entertainment to keep everyone amused.

And a must for Edinburgh shopping is the Ocean Terminal. It’s Europe’s largest waterfront complex. Browse through the large selection of shops or go on board the Royal Yacht Britannia for a guided tour. You’ll have a lot of fun. Don’t miss the gift shop aboard. You can pick up mementos relating to the Royal Family’s voyages.

Specialty Shops
No visitor to Scotland should miss Edinburgh shopping at Hawick Cashmeres. Purchase fine sweaters and scarves that are made in the family’s old mill. The prices are very reasonable.

The Tappit Hen is ideal Edinburgh shopping for authentic gifts. They stock a nice selection of Celtic wedding rings, jewelry, pewter goods and hand-knit capes.
Art lovers will have a great time browsing through limited edition prints at Westgate Gallery. These works of art portray the beautiful views of Scotland’s coasts and golf courses. You can also shop for ceramics and tableware.

And since Scotland’s golf courses are world renowned, golf centers are a must. Buy everything you need from clothing to equipment among a selection of brand names. These include Footjoy and Lyle & Scott to name a few.

Literary buffs need not worry. Edinburgh shopping is filled with opportunities for finding antique as well as new books. McNaughtan’s enjoys an excellent reputation for its variety in 2nd hand writings. The selection of arts and coffee table books is impressive.

If you’re looking for the perfect gift to bring home, Romanes and Paterson is the place. You’ll find authentic cashmere, whisky and highland dresses. Relax in the tea room and catch the vistas of the Edinburgh Castle. Afterward, you’ll be ready for more Edinburgh shopping.

Don’t dream of leaving without checking out William Armstrong & Sons. They own one of the largest venues for kilts and party wear.
