Multiple levels of shopping right next to Edinburgh Castle. Offers a large variety of items, but nothing you can't find anywhere else.

Excellent shop for all things Scottish and Tartan. Some high quality merchandise, including clothing and accessories as well as the usual touristy items. More of a shop than a museum but plenty to see and worth a visit.

Many floors of all color tartans. Blankets, Harry Potter memorabilia, swords, pins, souvenirs, etc.... lots to choose from. Easy to find as it is right next to the Edinburgh Castle.

If you are looking for an authentic and local business this would not be my first choice. The shopping store is full of everything that you could possibly get for tourist gifts. We went in knowing this at the beginning and just enjoyed everything they...More

You have to make your way all through the souvenir shop and down three flights of stairs to stand behind a glass window and watch a weaving backing go back and forth. It was not worth it.

Called in passing. There was a lot of cheap standard mass produced souvenirs. Many of which were not chap to buy. The weaving bit seemed side lined. Staff did not smile even when approached. Just a very large standard gift shop.

I really enjoyed seeing the weaving process on the bottom floor and what tartan they were in the process of weaving. This is a super large souvenir style shop with several levels, too.

From from what I’ve read this is the last working weaving mill in Edinburgh and it sits on the site of a 17th century water reservoir. The mill is located on the bottom floor, but it wasn’t apparent to me when you could observe the...More

This is actually an interesting attraction from a certain perspective. From the outside, this gift store complex by the entrance to Edinburgh Castle does not look large, but it is actually a sprawling complex which goes down some distance below street level into this large...More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the

It depends how many people you have. You can have two people, four people, all the way up to six people I believe. It was about £20 for me and my partner to have our photo taken and it's roughly £10 per person (I say roughly... More
