St Andrews iCentre have three days of festivities planned from 25 - 27 July to celebrate our 50th Anniversary. Shop Local suppliers, representatives from local attractions and tour guides will join us on each day to promote their products and meet with visitors.

We will also have food samples kindly available from some of our other suppliers who are unable to join us. Meet the likes of the Scottish Bee Company, St Andrews Museum, the Wee Neuk Ceramics and Scotia Spice. We would be delighted to meet you, pop in anytime between 10am - 4pm.

Our Aberfoyle iCentre are also sharing in the festivities with their Shop Local event which takes place on Sunday 28 July. 

Shop Local

In May 2017, VisitScotland launched its exciting new retail initiative Shop Local and since then, hundreds of local crafters have joined the scheme. Initially launched as a pilot in 2016, Shop Local has now been rolled out across the country, offering the opportunity for communities, local businesses, craft makers, artists, designers and other artisans to promote and sell their products to visitors via the VisitScotland iCentre network.

The initiative is aimed not at the established Scottish designers but at regional artisans without a real retail platform. It has been developed to provide a unique sales channel for small businesses producing ‘Made in Scotland’ products, offering visitors the chance to take an authentic, locally-produced piece of Scotland home with them.
