What could be better than world-class shopping in beautiful surroundings? Edinburgh & The Lothians are home to a wide range of shops, so whether you are a devotee of designer names or in heaven on the high street, the shopping won’t disappoint.

The city centre is the ideal place to start a shopping trip. You will find all the essential shops on Princes Street, as well as a grand old Edinburgh institution, Jenners, a quirky department store which has been a city landmark since it first opened in 1838.

For a modern shopping experience, visit the only Harvey Nichols in Scotland which sits on St Andrews Square just behind Princes Street and is full of luxurious treats.

On George Street, you will find an exclusive selection of high-end shops and top designer boutiques sitting alongside high street favourites, including some of the biggest names in fashion and jewellery. There are also several delicious eateries, where you can refuel and admire the street’s iconic architecture.

If you are looking for city centre shopping with a difference, the Royal Mile offers a shopping experience that you won’t find anywhere else. The Scottish shops on the Royal Mile offer perfect souvenirs alongside top-quality cashmere, whisky and delicious handmade fudge.

There is certainly no shortage of individual boutiques and charming shops in Edinburgh. The historic Grassmarket is a magnet for unusual shops, encompassing vintage clothes, contemporary jewellery and rare books.

The popular areas of Stockbridge, Bruntsfield, Morningside and the West End are also home to many unique shops and tearooms. While wandering around these shops, you will soon discover that each area has its own distinctive character.

In the Lothians, there are also great shopping opportunities. Named as one of the top 5 shopping outlets in the UK, there are over 70 designer brands to choose from at Livingston Designer Outlet, with discounts of up to 60 percent. Alternatively, visit Linlithgow, a Fairtrade Town, where you will find independent shops with a conscience.

Many of Edinburgh’s attractions, such as Edinburgh Castle and the Palace of Holyroodhouse, are close to the shopping areas, so why not complete the perfect day out by combining shopping with a visit to some of Edinburgh’s showcase attractions?
