While looking for a holiday apartment in Edinburgh, check out the city’s fabulous shopping! From the high street favourites on Princes Street to the funky West End boutiques and designer haven Harvey Nichols, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Harvey Nichols, the first Scottish store of the group, opened in 2002 and is a fashionista’s dream! Situated on swanky St Andrew Square, the store is packed with designer names such as Alexander McQueen and Prada, and has far-reaching views over the city from their stunning Forth Floor Restaurant.
Multrees Walk is home to designer labels including Mulberry and Louis Vuitton and a short walk across St Andrew Square takes you to Jenners, Edinburgh's original department store which opened in 1838. Also pay a visit to nearby George Street, parallel to Princes Street, which has a sophisticated mix of shops, bars and restaurants.
For a satisfying day’s shopping and entertainment, head to Ocean Terminal in Leith. With over 70 shops, 15 restaurants, and a 12 screen cinema there’s plenty to keep you busy. If you’re looking for more traditional Scottish clothing, head to the Old Town for the finest cashmere, tartan and knitwear.
