We are only a few minutes walk to the Eastgate Shopping Centre, which is located on the High Street of Inverness. It has a good selection of the high street favourites such as Marks & Spencer, Next, Boots, Superdry, Starbucks, Waterstones, Hotel Chocolate (many more!) and fast food outlets.
The High Street also has many well-known retailers such as Primark and throughout the year there is the regular farmers market selling wonderful local produce. There is often street entertainment too; organised events such as the classic car rally, the Inverness Street Festival and local musicians playing everything from opera to the bagpipes!
Throughout the city centre there are lovely boutique-style independent shops, selling beautiful Scottish crafts, gifts and souvenirs. Contemporary Scottish Fashion Designers, artisan food and drinks and so much more! The Victorian market is a marvellous indoor arcade built in the Victorian era and has an eclectic mix of shops and eateries. You cannot visit Inverness without visiting Leakeys Bookstore on Church Street, it’s an Inverness institution and voted as one of the best second-hand book stores in the UK.
When you are in Inverness, why not get measured up for a kilt? There are stores in Inverness that can tell you your Clan tartan and arrange to have a kilt made just for you.
Harris Tweed is a beautiful, high-quality cloth that is handwoven by islanders at their homes in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland and made from pure virgin wool dyed and spun in the Islands. You can buy clothes, souvenirs and many other items made from this wonderful cloth in the gift and souvenir stores in Inverness.
