Our Braemar store originally opened in 1986 hiring out cross-country skis and now offers everything from summer walking product and outerwear to alpine & nordic ski touring equipment.

We now have three stores which are located in BraemarBallater and Aviemore, either side of the Cairngorm National Park.  

The Team is made up of Outdoor & Industry Professionals with a passion for alpine and nordic touring, climbing and cycling and a general love of the outdoors.

We are a real bricks and mortar store with over 40 years experience and a wealth of product knowledge.
