It was nearly closing time but we managed to get a nice cup of coffee, biscuit and green tea.

The Edinburgh Woollen Mill was quiet and deserves to be busier. It has a great range of different products and I managed to get a couple of birthday presents.

It is quite difficult to find, if you're coming here for the first time.

Maybe it should re-locate to Lomond Shores as they could do with a bigger Edinburgh Woollen Mill shop there.

It has a few shops although I wouldn't call it a village. The place is slightly run down. But has what you need if you are looking for bedding whisky and gifts.

We were very disappointed in the village. Not anything like we imagined and in a very unsavoury seeming area. The items were also very expensive.

As you can see from the title I was press ganged to visit when the weather was inclement. Many items were supposedly for 'sale' but the general consensus by 'the professional shopper' was that there were no real bargains there.Thankfully a couple of tasting nips in the Whisky shop made the visit a little more bearable and the bank manager was pleased as well!
