Our tour group leader brought us to the Pringle store. It would have been nice to have learned something about the life and times of the people that worked here. There are some historic exhibits and some are very good. They could really make this a worthwhile stop by adding a guided historical tour in addition to the shopping. If they have such a tour, we surely missed it. Instead what we get here is a huge store packed to the gills with goodies to make any tourist shopper happy. This was a missed opportunity for us to learn about the history of the Pringle works in more detail. What a loss for them and us.

What people don't realise is that this was a weaving business founded by James Pringle, an Invernessian. It is NOT, nor does it pretend to be, anything to do with the James Pringle based in the Borders. But if people want to think it is, then let them. It was a family business until recently when Edinburgh Woolen Mill took over.

We were recommended by am assistan t in nearby supermarket as a place to get coffee. We went a couple of times, but it's a strange place. Food OK but a bit dry but drinks and food all served nicely on proper china. shop an old emporium with overpriced assorted old fashioned items.

We went to try to find tartan, but the two tartans we wanted they did not have in stock. But the gentleman that helped us was very nice and apologetic about not being able to find what we were looking for and instead gave us the information for the person he buys from, so that we could continue our search from home.
They have sections with souvenirs and then the rest is like a miniature department store. The souvenirs were reasonably priced, but didn't seem to be the best quality. I saw better souvenir items at the Culloden gift shop, Cawdor gift shop, and the souvenir store at the cruise pier. Luckily our guide had told us to eat at the Cawdor Castle Cafe because the food was better, so we didn't experience the food here. It wasn't busy at all there on a Saturday in July with a cruise ship in port though, so that was a plus!

Not sure what to make of this little place. Usual fayre of clothes, odds and ends, and ! model trains ! So and interesting mix.

But it's out of the way, so I'm guessing it's more for coach trips and the locals that live in the area.

However, a pleasant visit.
