  • House of Bruar

    Sometimes called, the ‘Harrods of the North’ House of Bruar is a must go to place for any visitor to the area. From fine clothes to house goods and fine food, there is something for everyone. To complement the Scottish country clothing range they have also cultivated an extensive network of local food suppliers who are dedicated to cultivating the very best in fresh produce, whether that’s outstanding Scottish Beef, stunning smoked salmon or even traditionally made jams and confectionaries. The fruits of their labours can be found in our Food Hall and Delicatessen, where they take their rightful place amongst the cream of the crop of hand-picked gourmet delights from across the globe.
