The Wonders of the West End
There's nothing better than strolling the streets of Edinburgh and appreciating the city for all it is (especially in this lovely weather).
A part of the city’s charm is the West End. Not being on the main tourist route, it has a quiet and quirky character. There are so many great independents nestled in (including our two stores!), so we thought we would give you our run-down of how to make the most of the area.
Frontiers Man is the sister company of Frontiers woman and is also packed full of great brands. The big news is the shop is expanding and moving across the street. It is all very exciting. So, if you know any men, send them over and get them kitted out!
Gallery Ten is the most wonderful space. If you love beautiful contemporary art or crafted pieces, it is the treasure trove to choose. You will find everything from prints to etchings, glass wear to ceramics and jewellery. The collections are beautifully chosen, so if you are after something special and unique, Gallery Ten will tick the box.
There is always an excuse to get flowers from Rogue’s charming floristry. They have a rustic, creative feel to their work and shop, with so much love and care going into their product. So, go and grab yourself a bunch of flowers. It is always worth it!
A good stationery shop is definitely one of the most satisfying finds in life. Paper Tiger is the find! Bringing excitement to children and adults alike, you will find everything from cards, to art supplies, wrapping papers, pens, gifts and lots more. So, go in and feed your stationary excitement.
Winner of Most Stylish Bar 2018 by the Scottish Style Awards, grabbing a cocktail, pint and a bite at Voyage of Buck is a no brainer (and we've spent many a 'business meeting' doing just that!). Deco inspired by the adventurer and colonialist Buck, the space is full of intrigue and elegance. There is nothing better than going to indulge and re-charge in this great bar and restaurant.
