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.

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.

These premises are on a steep slope. Typically a large Scottish Tartan Retail Shop with lots of interesting and unusual gift ideas. Tartans, blankets, whiskies, food, suitcases, dishes,... More

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.
