I’ve wanted a targe for over a decade. A targe is a shield for battle, used by the Scots. They had the perfect one. Glad I found it.

This shop was so much better than the ones we had visited in Edinburgh. The merchandise was better quality and the prices lower. We found several items to purchase and the people were very friendly and helpful.

This is quite a small shop, but it's crammed with some lovely gifts and souvenirs, which were much better quality than many of the places we went into and some of it was really different. There's a variety of price points too, so you can...More

The name of the premise bears the word "centre" but this is just an ordinary shop where very ordinary, standards souvenirs are sold. The staff is very indifferent to the customers, they really don't care about the visitors at all. The stuff sold are low...More

Basically just a side of the road tourist trap that doesn't offer anything of interest other than the same touristy crap that every other store of its ilk will try to sell you.

I am so sorry not to have responded to you sooner. I was abroad and didn't pick up this until today. Did you pop into The Clansman Centre when you were there? Did you manage to get a show?
