Yes, this is a genuine large old mill on the banks of the River Ness (which originally powered the mill machinery). It's located at the very edge of the city on the right (East) bank of the Ness. And yes, the company bears an old and respected name. And yes again, there are old looms and other weaving equipment on... More

Noticed a difference in the variety of men and women's clothes available - didn't take us long to get round the shop. Cafe food was average. Chips need improving. Requested chips to be in a separate bowl for sharing (twice) but they arrived with panini. Average price for lunch food.

This store proposes a large number of different articles (clothes, shoes, souvenirs, whisky, golf equipment, kiltmaker items .....) to prices often interesting. Very large choice. This store well deserves a visit.

This place is geared for an older market. Lots of clothing and things for sale that should have been thrown out. Some bargains though if you look hard enough.
