I have used Aquila many times since it first opened, especially when looking to find a gift that is a little different. I am happy to say the service has been excellent and I have not failed to find something suitable. The shop is small, colourful and bright and it is a pleasure just to enter. The items sold are tasteful and different from the usual fare offered on and off the High Street in Edinburgh and clearly carefully chosen. A wee treat!

Aquila is a real exception compared to all those gifts stores that sell the same magnets, shot glasses and lighters that look the same in all countries. The visitor may find uniquely crafted gifts, from beautiful coasters with typical Edinburgh scenery to hand-made bags and jewelry. Myself and my partner liked the gifts we bought so much that decided to offer those lovely coasters as gifts for our wedding guests. Needless to say that the owner was really helpful and we had our delivery in no time. Highly recommended!

Wonderful choice of gifts, crafts and tasteful souvenirs all beautifully displayed in this gorgeous little boutique. Very friendly staff and no pressure. A real little gem just off the Royal Mile.

Just off the Royal Mile I came across a shop with tasteful and quality souvenirs. From unique coasters and place mats to signed prints of landscapes,with everything in between. Managed to do all my take home shopping in one place and at reasonable prices. Australia will be impressed.

If you want to buy something different for a special present this is the place to go. Gorgeous jewellery,scarves,prints and cards. Not run of the mill. Not a bit of tartan in sight,just tasteful local crafts. Love it.
