The Clan & Christmas Shop
Our Clan & Christmas Shop is back for its second year and is even bigger and better this time!
Filled with festive goodies including gifts, toys, homeware, decorations and food & drink
We have five festive themes sure to appeal to different tastes. Our Christmas Fun section caters for children and families and features traditional toys and gifts and plenty of Santas. Sparkling Christmas offers lots of lovely pastels for those looking for a more subtle approach to decorating. Our Traditional Scottish section is ideal for those who love the classic red and greens of the season along with rich tartans while Highland Christmas is more masculine, incorporating pared back designs with warm copper tones. And then there’s our Banqueting table packed with fantastic festive fayre including many lines from local suppliers.
This year we’re also introducing a programme of late night shopping and festive activities throughout December. Sign up to our e-newsletter
to find out more.
