Shoddy clothing, apart from a few clothes, staff dressed in over-sized fleeces. NOT what I would want Scotland to be known for!

Walked 1.3 miles from the centre of Inverness. Beautiful walk along the River Ness popped on to the islands on the way. Looking forward to a shopping experience. Arrived at a couple of old buildings each housing a retail establishment. Since when did two buildings make a shopping village. Yes, there was a small weaving exhibition. In terms of shopping...

We visit regularly - we wouldn't if the Staff were unpleasant or we'd had a bad experience. The retail outlet is well-stocked and worth a browse for a bargain. There's the usual whisky, fudge, shortbread and "wee Nessies" for sale too. There's plenty of space to wander without feeling pressured. As for the cafe, it serves simple foods, well cooked.Choice...

The actual station is here and then you can go shopping in what looks like some of it was an old station building! It does pottery, jewelry, souvenirs, clothes are a bit more for older shoppers styles, wine and whiskey was quite expensive though. It does have a cafe, and always a bonus free parking!

Enjoyed a week-end visit for coffee and cakes. Nice home made sultana cake and carrot cake. Had a browse round the clothes, shoes, ornaments, etc.,and never leave without being tempted to buy something. Good time to see end of season bargains.

Stopped for breakfast as part of our coach party's day outing to Fort Augustus. For just three pounds enjoyed six items from a wide choice, including vegetarian options, freshly cooked and served piping hot with good coffee. Excellent value for money. The staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Just had time to look at the shoes (and buy a pair... More

This shopping outlet was used as a lunch stop for our tour. It really wasn't worth the stop. The service was slow. The food was poor, I ordered chicken curry. I was served a small bowl of rice with around a 1/2 cup of chicken cubes and a tasteless sauce that had nothing to do with curry. The goods in... More

A collection of different shops and outlets with cafe attached. We had a good browse around the different components and found some things worth buying. Has the usual Scottish items and more mundane day to day goods. Also has a bit of a museum with weaving equipment etc.

We chose to visit as my partner's elderly nan read the leaflet and was eager to visit. All I can day is whoever did the leaflet, did a bloody good job. Making some old buildings look like a grand shopping centre. Only good thing... The haggis and brie toastie.
