Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie Old Smelly , as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the Nearby Hotels See all nearby hotels. Nearby Restaurants See all 2, nearby restaurants. Probably not that surprising though that there were lot of tourists looking quite bemused by the whole experience.
Instead this shop actually sells proper decorative objects for your tree and home. If you want to experience that Christmas feeling every day, then the Christmas shop is for you!
This place gets kudos just for how bizarre it is. Located on Victoria St. Having slagged off the other Christmas shops in Edinburgh, I actually found myself purchasing something in this store, in MAY! I could not resist the Scottish themed tree decorations, which are really prominent in the store, as well as the London collection, which is super cute and includes things like little drummer boys and even a red phonebox!
Quite expensive, but so worth it, he is adorable. I could have chosen a Scottie dog or a thistle, the choice is huge. So maybe I take it back a little bit… These Christmas shops maybe do have a point!
This is one of my favourite Christmas shops in Edinburgh. Along with selling glitzy baubles and garishly brilliant glittering reindeer, I absolutely adore the massive, themed tree decorations they have in here.
But although I can imagine it being absolutely mobbed on the run up to Christmas, it has its evergreen charm all year round. Get you X mas factor any time of the of the year this shop is full with beautiful ornate baubles.
