You’ve experienced the unbridled luxury of staying in a world-class, five-star hotel in Scotland. You’ve sampled the finest cuisine at some of the country’s most distinguished restaurants. You’ve explored the very best the Highlands have to offer, and you’ve done it all in truly grand style.
So, now that it comes to shopping for those gifts and souvenirs, only the very best will do.
Luckily, that’s where we come in.
Today, the team here at the award-winning Dunalastair Hotel Suites offer up the selection of our favorite must-visit stores in Highland Scotland, each serving as the perfect choice for luxury shopping.
1: House of Bruar
Blair Atholl, Perthshire, Scotland, PH18 5TW
Specialising in the finest quality Scottish country clothing, plus a unique selection of gifts and gourmet goods, House of Bruar also offers exquisite dining in its own in-house restaurant and art gallery that are both well worth a look.
Open seven days a week from 10AM to 5PM (excluding Christmas Day and New Year’s Day)
The premier name in refined Scottish style, House of Bruar offer a broad selection of traditional Scottish garments, goods, and gourmet cuisine.
From high-quality outdoors wear for your next Highland adventure to traditional Scottish tweeds to create a more distinguished look for formal occasions, House of Bruar’s country clothing collections are unrivalled anywhere in Scotland.
2: Highland House of Fraser
Huntly Street, Inverness, IV35PR
For exceptional quality kilt making and bespoke highland dress, this traditional Scottish store is a must-visit.
Open Monday to Saturday, 9AM to 5PM
Is there any better way to enjoy a truly authentic Highland experience than donning your very own kilt or Highland dress, tailor-made to suit you?
We certainly don’t think so, which is why we love Highland House of Fraser in Inverness.
This family-owned business on the banks of the River Ness specialise in traditional Highland attire with both off-the-rack and bespoke garments available.
3: The Shed gallery
The Square, Kinloch Rannoch, Perth and Kinross, PH16 5PN
Specialising in framed and unframed artwork depicting both iconic views and lesser-known beauty spots, The Shed Gallery is a must-visit for anyone who finds themselves truly in love with the local scenery.
Open Tuesdays to Fridays, 10PM to 5PM | Saturdays 12PM to 4PM
Make no mistake about it, we’re a nation of art lovers here in Scotland. According to Creative Scotland, as many as 65% of respondents to their annual omnibus survey engaged in some form of creative activity.
Meanwhile, 78% agreed that their local area would lose something of value if it lost its arts and cultural activities.
Fortunately, we’re in no danger of losing anything here in Kinloch Rannoch, as our very own local gallery and art studio The Shed Gallery is very much alive and thriving.
Home to the creative work of photographer Ian Biggs, The Shed is the perfect place to pick up stunning photographs of the Highland landscape that will bring back fond memories of your Highland holiday long after you’ve returned home.
4: Iain Burnett The Highland Chocolatier
Legends of Grandtully, between Aberfeldy and Pitlochry Perthshire, PH9 0PL
A must-visit for anyone with a sweet tooth, be sure to take home some of Iain Burnett’s famous Velvet Truffles. They make the perfect gift for friends and loved ones that is if you can manage to keep your hands-off them long enough!
Open daily from 12PM to 4PM
When it comes to sweet treats, they don’t come any more luxurious nor any more scrumptious than those created by Master Chocolatier Iain Burnett.
A true highlight of any visit to Highland Perthshire, Iain’s chocolate shop is the only place to sample his famous, award-winning truffles along with a tantalising selection of chocolate bars, delicious chocolate-dipped fruit and more.
