Description: We are an award winning department store based in beautiful Beauly in The Highlands of Scotland. We are the Best Gift Retailer Scotland 2015 and also Finalist Best Lifestyle, Homewares and Gifts 2016. Our shop is a mini, bespoke department store with a tendency towards being slightly bonkers. We showcase the very best selection of clothing, gifts, books, music and smellies so make sure you have plenty time to spare when you step through our doors. You could be with us for some time. We are shopping heaven. As Roald Dahl said "Tremendous things are in store for you! Wonderful surprises await you!"

This is my new favourite place, its a complete package where you can loose several hours quite happily.

As you enter the gifts and crafts are delightful, all presented in a very funky way and I love the CD room. The cafe serves excellent cakes and goodies, the coffee is first class and the staff are really friendly.

It has a lovely boutique feel and I really enjoy spending time here.

Lovely little place, top notch! So near to everything in Beauly. Will of course visit the next time I'm in Beauly (visiting my Granny there!).

I went in there primarily to ask about printing off a letter I needed to send; they obliged without requiring me to buy anything from the shop though I did anyway! Thanks very much!

We always visit the Old School House to go to the gift and book shop but thought we would try the cafe for lunch and really enjoyed our visit. It is a lovely setting and has a seating area outside for sunny days. The menu has a good selection and is very child friendly but the specials board is a delight with good choices for vegetarians and we had to restrain ourselves from ordering some of the delicious desserts and cakes. The staff were excellent and very accommodating towards our toddler. She enjoyed her special 'Kids Platter' and ate it all, so a good sign of approval! This is one of the outstanding eateries of our week long holiday in the Highlands and I would thoroughly recommend it.
