Coming to Edinburgh for your Christmas shopping will be rewarding in so many ways. With some of the best boutique stores, chains stores, high street brand stores and independent stores Edinburgh cannot be missed this Christmas.

When it comes to Christmas markets, Edinburgh’s is up there with the best. From 18 November, for six weeks in the run-up to the big day, Princes Street Gardens are lined with stalls selling crafts, artwork and all manner of unexpected delights, sure to please even the pickiest on the Xmas list.

Your shopping trip continues with all the wondrous stores along Princes Street and George Street and everything in between. You will find M&S, Harvey Nichols, Topshop and many other leading stores all within walking distance. You can also look for those winter warmer bargains down the Royal Mile, just off Nicolson Bridge where you will find tartan, tweed and wool shops in abundance.

Shopping Breaks in the Scottish Capital

Book a two-night stay this  December and, as well as specially reduced rates, we’ll include a nip of whisky to warm your cockles on arrival, a champagne-enhanced (and suitably festive) afternoon tea on one day of your stay, and of course, the full Scottish breakfast each morning.

Meanwhile, Back at The Dunstane

Once you’ve had enough Christmas shopping we will be waiting to serve you with the perfect evening meal in The Ba’Bar If you so wish, you can shut the winter outside and relax in your room with a nice long bath. Go ahead, spoil yourself, it’s Christmas.
