The ‘famous’ Spotty Bag Shop in Banff is Scotland’s unique shopping experience. Described by customers as a “charming and chaotic Aladdins cave”, this 3 star ‘Tourist Shop’ offers over 40,000 different lines on 18,000 sq. feet of retail space. We have it all – clothing, toys, luggage & bags, footwear, bowling equipment, homeware, beauty, gifts, DIY equipment, arts & crafts, books, electrical appliances, fancy dress costumes, party supplies, stationary, gardening equipment, health & beauty products, pet products, food & drinks – there really is something for everyone.

Our festive shop is open all year round. Your gardening supplies and surfing gear will be available in the spring and summer months. We stock top of the range garden furniture & water features – not to mention being up to our elbows in compost and plants!

Our Halloween experience is one of the biggest and best in Scotland. We have customers visiting us from across the country to see our incredible range of costumes, decorations and accessories.

We have Christmas all wrapped up at The Spotty Bag Shop. Toys, gifts, decorations, trees and, of course, our very own magical Santa’s grotto. Christmas wouldn’t be complete without Santa’s reindeer so don’t miss our Christmas parade with REAL reindeer on the Sunday before Christmas.

Be sure to visit our award winning café and enjoy our homemade Scottish food in a relaxed atmosphere. With Visit Scotland’s Taste Our Best accreditation, you can be assured that top-quality Scottish produce is used throughout the menu. Our selection of hearty meals, simple snacks, delicious sandwiches, gluten-free options and tempting cakes provides you with a variety of choice, whatever you fancy.

Look out for Spencer our mascot! The cheeky ‘spotty bag’ is always out and about at local events so give him a high-five if you ‘spot’ him.
