Edinburgh is a wonderful short break destination. Full of history, amazing architecture and, of course, fabulous independent shops. Scotland has a marvelous heritage, from historic tartans and locally-made cashmere to historic buildings to draw upon, that is reflected in the array of goods offered in Edinburgh’s independent shops. We highly recommend a trip to this great city but as travel these days is still limited we’re sharing a roundup of some of our favorite products from around Edinburgh this “Shop Independent Edinburgh Shopping Guide”. 21 products selected from our Favorite Edinburgh Shops. Most shops offer worldwide shipping – but for the perishable food offerings shipping is more limited. So happy shopping and if you’re planning a visit to this historic Scottish city check out our TSK Maps Edinburgh.
