Description: We are an award winning department store based in beautiful Beauly in The Highlands of Scotland. We are the Best Gift Retailer Scotland 2015 and also Finalist Best Lifestyle, Homewares and Gifts 2016. Our shop is a mini, bespoke department store with a tendency towards being slightly bonkers. We showcase the very best selection of clothing, gifts, books, music and smellies so make sure you have plenty time to spare when you step through our doors. You could be with us for some time. We are shopping heaven. As Roald Dahl said "Tremendous things are in store for you! Wonderful surprises await you!"

Great place to stop if in the Beauly area or following the Moray Firth Tourist Route. Food is excellent, great value for money. Good selection through the day and it all seems to be homemade. Highly recommended.

Had a cup of tea and scone here with my sister on Sunday. The staff were very friendly and the prices competitive. The tea was good too!
I went to school here over 50 years ago so this was the first time I had eaten in the "refectory". The shop is lovely and well stocked with some beautiful items. Well done to the owners and people who work there.

Thank you for your kind review. We are hoping to compile some memorabilia such as photos or other items from the days when this lovely building was a functioning school. As a former pupil, if you have any such items we would love to know. We would hope to have some kind of display which would be of great interest to lots of folk. If you are interested at all, please email us at oldschoolbeauly@gmail.com. Again, thank you for your lovely review.

I was there on Sunday and had a lovely cup of tea with my sister who like my other sisters went there to School. My late Mother also went there and she would be pleased in what has been done there. My Mum also liked a cup fo tea. The quality of the food is tops and the service is excellent.
Beauly is nice place to visit. The Old School as lots to offer the shop is just such a high standard and well priced. I love visiting Beauly as it a beautiful place.

We are so glad you enjoyed our tasty cakes, all made by our clever and fair lady cooks in our kitchen. We are aware of the echoey nature of our cafe and hope to address this when we extend our premises later this year by putting in some softer furnishings and carpet. Many kind thanks and we look forward to welcoming you again. X
