I'm planning a trip to Scotland in the upcomming year and thought this book would give me a heads up about shopping in Glasgow and Edinburgh. While beautifully photographed, the book only deals with high end shopping and expensive specialty shops. I would have appreciated more information that would appeal to broad range of customer, from high end to lo. found the book disappointing. 3 people found this helpful.

Susie Kelly's Books Page. Events outside my control meant that I missed the deadline for my new book, but it is moving forward and on schedule for publication in summer of 2020. 2020 is certainly going to be an interesting year, and whatever it brings, my goal is to live for the day, do no harm, take care of those. I love, and stay positive. Even when things do go wrong, and we face worries and difficulties, I remind myself that we are the fortunate and privileged few among the total population of the world.

Named the top shopping destination in the United Kingdom outside of London, “Glasgow is a must-see destination…a mandatory stop on everyone’s European travel itinerary” (The Philadelphia Inquirer) and Edinburgh has long been considered one of the most hospitable cities in Europe. This book has eleven walks–seven in Edinburgh and four in Glasgow–taking shoppers to the most charming and unique stores in both cities, which are less than an hour away from each other by train.The shops included offer cashmere, hats, shoes, books, handcrafted soaps and natural botanicals inspired by Scotland (Treasure Island is a heady mix of musk, lemon, and cinnamon inspired by the Robert Louise Stevenson classic), single malt whiskies, purses, the best of British home design, and jewelry using Scottish gemstones. There are shops that specialize in traditional foods (farmhouse cheeses, toffee, shortbread, and lemon curd). There’s a “glorious mess of an antique shop,” a “kilt maker for the 21st century” who uses fabrics that range from denim to leather and whose customers include Sean Connery, and many more establishments, both new and historic. Old businesses aren’t included simply for being old, but for continuing to offer goods of beauty and quality; new businesses are chosen because they operate in an old-fashioned way, with an emphasis on service and craftsmanship. Some are elegant and refined, some offer on quirky twists on classic themes, but each is stylish and without pretense. One shop owner says her boutique attracts the “discerning and determinedly different.”The guide also includes restaurants, pubs, and cafés along the walks, and has an entire section devoted to the stunning tearooms of Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the Edinburgh farmer’s market.Sumptuous color photos throughout give a sneak preview of the shops and their offerings, and the address, phone number, opening days and hours, and website of each establishment are included for extra convenience.
