This was just a small shop which did have nice items. The person at the register was on the phone the entire time we were in there but since we were really just checking out what they had to offer, that did not bother us.More

A historical overview of what it was like to live in the Highlandsin the 1700’s. It was decorated as if you were in a real clan home. The presentation was excellent.

I’ve wanted a targe for over a decade. A targe is a shield for battle, used by the Scots. They had the perfect one. Glad I found it.

This shop was so much better than the ones we had visited in Edinburgh. The merchandise was better quality and the prices lower. We found several items to purchase and the people were very friendly and helpful.

I am so sorry not to have responded to you sooner. I was abroad and didn't pick up this until today. Did you pop into The Clansman Centre when you were there? Did you manage to get a show?
