Welcome to Simply the Best Shopping Destinations in Great Britain

Inverarary Woollen Mill

Simply the Best


Select Country to find Visitor Centre locations

As part of the "Simply the Best" tourist initiative, The Edinburgh Woollen Mill blazes a trail from Trerulefoot in the South East corner of England to the most northern point of the British mainland at John O' Groats.

Highlights along the trail are the Scottish Deer Centre at Cupar - with fourteen species of deer, the largest collection in Europe, scenic pathways, treetop walkways, as well as a Highland Smokehouse selling a delicious range of smoked kippers, trout and salmon. The Scottish Wool Centre at Aberfoyle where visitors are daily treated to an amazing performance by the famous 'sheepducks' - a team of canny collies who specialise in 'duck round-ups'. History enthusiasts will enjoy a day at Moffat Mill - a leading 'speciality shop' stocking tweeds and tartans where visitors can watch weavers working on traditional Hattersley looms while they shop. And still in keeping with tradition, The Edinburgh Woollen Mill operates Clan and Tartan Centres, rich in the history of Scottish Clan history where individual Clan certificates can be printed and purchased.

Visit our centres in Scotland, England and Wales.
