    Shops in or near Inverness

    Since I don't want to hijack the thread about shops in Edinburgh, I decided to make a new post. I am currently in Inverness and wondered what second hand shops I should check out for kilt accessories. Anything in the surrounding area would also be great,Beauly, Dingwall, Fort Augustus, Cromarty,Dornoch, wherever.

    I was also wondering where to find Robert Mackie bonnets.

    Try Chisholm's for highland wear in Inverness opposite the castle, I believe. Campbells of Beauly for tweeds etc . and while you're there down the street on the other side you will find
    Iain Marr Antiques... you won't be disappointed, I assure you.

    Yes to Chisholm’s in Castle St., and Campbell’s of Beauly. I have no experience of Ian Marr.

    Just goes to show there’s money in them thar hills (Highland ones that is)! I somehow think they must be relying on internet sales at those prices.

    I remeber this at auction fairly recently. Marked up further of course but iIt's interesting that he has started buying their rather than privately.

    Yes to Chisholms in Inverness, and to Campbells and Iain Marr in Beauly, but I think the OP was asking about charity shops.

    IF this one was still available, I doubt that I could have resisted...
