The House Of Bruar, near Blair Atholl
Want to be taken by surprise – then whilst in the area a visit to The House Of Bruar is recommended. Opened in 1995, it is situated 10 miles north of Pitlochry. Founded by Mark Birbeck, who was originally from Yorkshire – he and his wife had run a most successful business with over 130 shops selling mainly jumpers. On the back of this they had sales in success of 100 million and decided to fulfil their dream and love for the Highlands and fishing to sell up and move northwards and hence The House Of Bruar was born. This takes the shopping experience to a new level. Renowned for quality, this is undoubtedly one of the finest Scottish country clothing purveyors. Browse through the selection of heritage tweeds, fine cashmere with the widest selection in the UK, and woollen products all sitting alongside brands such as Barbour, Musto and Aigle in the clothing halls.
If that’s not enough venture over to the food market and give your taste buds a treat with their fresh produce from local suppliers who pride themselves on quality goods. Be tempted with the Scottish Beef, smoked salmon, homemade comfiture and after all that indulge in grabbing a quick bite, afternoon tea with voluptuous scone, cream and jam or feeling a little more peckish them why not try their hot dishes, selection of fishes, salads and so much more. You won’t be disappointed.
