Local Shopping

Where We Are >> Local Shopping

If you want covered malls and "clone" (chain) shops, this is the wrong place!

Rediscover proper old shopping in small independent specialist shops. Visitors are constantly amazed - they thought this kind of experience had been lost from the UK forever.

3 towns have given themselves a brand to highlight their special focus:
Castle Douglas Food Town (yes, but there's so much more ...);
Kirkcudbright Artists' Town
Wigtown Book Town

Shopping highlights of these towns (and others) are listed below. See Unique Towns for an introduction to the towns themselves.
