Address
Neighbourhood: Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.

Had my made to measure appointment today and the customer service was outstanding. The staff have a wealth of knowledge and put in extra effort to satisfy the customers wishes and more. I could not recommend more for first time or experienced kilt buyers- the quality of their highland-wear is superb

We rented a couple of kilts for our Scotland trip and loved it.
Staff were super friendly and helpful, explaining each facet about wearing the kilt and origins. We selected the kilt of the Scottish National football team and the kilt of Edinburgh University for us.

Made for some beautiful pics, memories which will live with us forever!

Spent Tuesday morning in your shop, having a highland dress outfit measured for my son - fantastic, friendly, knowledgeable service from Helen and was good fun too.

Lovely outfit chosen with lots of options.

Loved it so much my husband returned in the afternoon and purchased an outfit himself!

I recently had a kilt made to order. The craftsmanship and customer service were outstanding. They helped me through the online process from start to finish. I have other kilts made and one from Gordon Nicholson is top of the line.

Recently purchased a made to measure kilt for my daughters wedding. Although the purchase was made during coronavirus lockdown the process could not have been easier. The 'how to measure' demonstrations on the website are excellent, so much so that my kilt fitted perfectly when I collected it. Additionally, the assistance afforded by the shop attendants via email could not be faulted. Finally, collection day was made simple with all the expected coronavirus protocol put in-place from the moment I entered the shop. Overall an excellent experience from start to finish - i would not hesitate to recommend Nicolson Kiltmakers .

Fantastic service from GNK. After putting on a few pounds in the 20 years I’ve had my kilt, they managed to work some magic and expertly managed to add some extra material, you would never know. And I will hopefully get another 20 years of wear from it.
Thanks to all at GNK

Beyond delighted with my new hand made kilt created by GNK Gordon Nicolson Kiltmakers, and especially Kirsty for going the extra mile to get it finished in time for my next travel assignment to Israel on Friday.

The level of service from Gordon and his team has been second to none.🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🥰🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Gordon arranged the kilt hire for my stepdaughers wedding. Due to covid restrictions we had to measure at home and when the kilts were supplied the week before the wedding a few alterations were required. These were done professionally within 24 hours and 11 kilted men were delighted with the final look. Would heartily recommed the shop for anyone considering a hire or purchase. Staff are very professional and courteous and responsed quickly with communications. Thansk again for making the happy couples special day extra special
