House of Bruar

House of Bruar
House of Bruar is a unique luxury shopping experience just 10 miles up the road from our hotel in Pitlochry. It is quite an usual place selling all that falls into the category of ‘country luxury’, from tweed and cashmere to fishing tackle, fine art, toys and interior furnishings.
