"Steer clear of the tacky..." Shopping Tip by StirCrazy

Shopping, Edinburgh: 6 reviews and 6 photos


<font color=#003399>Steer clear of the tacky tartan shops!! OK, I know people think all we Scots go around wearing the plaid... but we don't; we're pretty normal people, you know! And the stuff they tend to sell these days doesn't usually date back hundreds of years to the days of William Wallace... So save your money, or at least give it to a worthier cause such as one of the homeless Big Issue vendors you'll find on Princes Street instead!
