Our story begins a decade ago while touring the Highlands of our beautiful country. We went off the beaten track and began to truly explore our amazing countryside, our Scottish history, our wee villages and our incredible crafters. Throughout our tour, we visited many wee shops and found that, while they usually offered one or two items from their local area, most were being seen as souvenir shops carrying Scottish themed items instead of Scottish made gifts. We decided that we wanted to showcase Scotlandís talent and set out on a path to do just that!
Ten years in the making, A Gift From Scotland was born and is the trading name of Gifts From Scotland Ltd. We are a family run business located in the wonderful village of Aberlour in the Northeast of Scotland.
Aberlour is right in the heart of the Speyside Whisky Country which is home to over half of Scotlandís distilleries . While the Speyside Whisky Trail takes you past the front of our shop, passing behind our shop is The Speyside Way, one of Scotlandís four long distance walks. The route host numerous walkers and cyclists each year traveling from SpeyBay in the North all the way to Aviemore (or vice versa).
From our wee shop, and now online, we strive to bring you the best handmade products Scotland has to offer. We're passionate about quality Scottish design and we ensure that all our products reflect this. The inspiration for our products comes from the Scottish countryside, Scottish industries, and Scottish history and culture. From our own clan crested range to the wooden, tartan and tweed gifts that we offer, we are proud to say that all products in our shop are made in Scotland either by ourselves or by quality crafters throughout Scotland. Some of our raw materials may have started life elsewhere but the finished products are proudly Scottish Made. We source our own raw materials responsibly and use Scottish suppliers whenever possible and we ask that all of our crafters do the same. Because a majority of the products are designed and created by ourselves, we can personalise the gifts to make them extra special. We are also continuously searching for unique new treasures and will keep you posted as we introduce new products to both the shop and the website.
We hope that you will enjoy browsing our site and sharing in what Scotland has to offer. We have tried to make the site informative and easy to use. We will always strive to provide top quality products and service but if you have any queries, concerns or feedback, please get in touch.
If you are planning a visit to Northeast Scotland, we hope you will stop in to the shop and say Ďhelloí. Alternatively, you can always find us online, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
