Romanes & Paterson

Romanes & Paterson is the premier shopping destination for all things Scottish themed, renowned for giving the best customer service and shopping experience. The business has traded in Edinburgh since 1808 and we have been in our iconic building on Princes Street since 1880. We are winners of the Visit Scotland Thistle Award “Best Shopping Experience” 2012 for central, south and east Scotland.

We can facilitate many requests such as talks on whisky or highland dress, special menus in the tearoom and creating goodie bags or packs for events.

Our range includes the following:
Scottish Luxury Textiles
We are envied for our extensive collections of scarves, rugs & serapes in cashmere and lambs-wool in a range of tartans and plains including such famous brands as Johnstons of Elgin. There are prices to suit every pocket whether for you or as a gift always a memory of your time in Scotland.

Cashmere & Country Clothing
For gentlemen we must start off with Harris tweed woven in the Outer Hebrides, alongside this we have wax jackets and coats, cashmere & lambs-wool knitwear and accessories. For ladies we have a huge range of cashmere & lambs-wool knitwear and accessories including jewellery from leading companies. 

We stock an extensive range of Scottish foods including shortbread from Walkers and Deans, confectionary from Ross’s of Edinburgh with tablet, fudge, toffees and many types of Edinburgh Rock.

Spirit of Scotland Whisky Shop
A Scottish experience would not be complete without the “water of life” which is well represented in store with over 200 malts and a range of blends, spirits, liqueurs and beers from all of the regions across Scotland. There is a tasting bar every day giving samples of malts and liqueurs in the true Scots welcoming spirit!

Highland Dress and Clan
We have a dedicated floor to support highland dress, offering made to measure kilts, skirts, waistcoats and trews. We also have one of the biggest selections of clan family name and tartan souvenirs available.

Souvenirs & Gifts
Our range of souvenirs & gifts covers a wide spectrum from key-rings, home-wares & ornaments, kid’s bagpipes & soft toys with a range of prices to suit all pockets and tastes.

Our Sir Walter Scott’s Traditional Tearoom on the second floor of Romanes & Paterson’s affords fantastic views across the Princes Street Gardens to the Old Town and of course Edinburgh Castle itself.  A table service restaurant, where the focus is on traditional Scottish fayre with all the food freshly prepared on the premises.
