Visitors are invited to browse the selection of goods on show in our Gift Shop, which is full of items specially chosen by the Laird’s wife to complement their visit to the Castle.
We have scarves, gloves, socks and woollen blankets by world-famous cashmere producer Johnstons of Elgin, luxurious soaps, moisturisers and bath products from Scottish Fine Soaps, sheepskin hats, gloves and rugs, ties, Harris Tweed bags, and a range of pendants, earrings and brooches from the Heathergems collection, as well as a delectable selection of biscuits and shortbread from Walkers of Aberlour, pure heather honey from Struan Apiaries, and an assortment of toys, games and books for children.
Featured alongside the more traditional Highland gifts and our own ‘Ballindalloch Castle’ souvenir range are items from some of our talented local producers: jewellery from Mhairi Walker, lavender Scottie dogs from ‘Blairies of Banffshire’, and a variety of locally-made jams, chutneys and marmalade. In addition, we have a new range of candles and home fragrancing which has been made locally, exclusively for sale at the Castle.
Our selection of books ranges from the natural environment, history and whisky to walking guides and maps – and, of course, we stock the cookbooks I Love Food and I Love Food 2 as well as I Love Banffshire (the latter produced for charity), all by the Laird’s mother, Clare Macpherson-Grant Russell – more about these on our Books page.
