Overview

Bursting with bright ideas for gifts and souvenirs.Tippecanoe is centrally placed on the main street in Portree the bustling, picturesque 'capital' of Skye. We are open all year round providing a fun shopping experience for all ages. A wide range of carefully chosen prints, books, jewellery, candles, ceramics and cuddly toys....many locally made, many handmade in Scotland or fairly traded from around the world. Friendly service with a big smile too :-)

The store does carry some run-of-the-mill touristy stuff like magnets and mugs, but otherwise they have a good range of souvenirs at a price that doesn't hurt the pocket! Worth a visit.

This is such a great little store. It has a ton on items but it is fun to look around and talk to the shop owner.

Well stocked shop with something for everyone, gifts for others or just for yourself. Reasonably priced and things a wee bit out of the ordinary. Well worth a browse.

While you can pick up postcards at virtually any souvenir shop in town Tippecanoe had a larger and much more creative selection. There are beautiful oversized cards containing great photos of Skye's most photographed sights.
