There’s more to Gullane than golf and gorgeous beaches… there is also a fabulous array of independent shops dotted around.

And what’s more there are plenty of great reasons for doing your shopping at local markets or in independent stores. I’m often in awe of how independents are merchandised and styled; love that I can bag a unique piece that no one else has; enjoy the banter with the shop owner and like the idea I’m putting money in the pocket of a local artisan or owner to fuel our local economy (and help put dinner on their tables).

Here six of Gullane’s fabulous stores give you one great reason (well product) to shop in Gullane…

1.GANNETS DELI & farmhouse and organic produce
At Gannets Deli we not only stock a fine selection of farmhouse cheeses, local smoked salmon and delicious pâté, but we also have organic vegetables (including fantastic fresh turmeric!), eggs and freshly baked bread. We’re open Monday to Saturday from 8.30am to 5pm.
