Financed by founder Mark Birkbeck from the sale of his successful Jumpers chain of high street clothing shops in the 1980s, the House of Bruar was planned from the outset to showcase the very best in Scottish clothing, produce, art and fashion, bringing together the top brands in the country clothing world to create a shop window for Scotland where tourists and travellers could see the best of what Scotland has to offer in a single upscale retail destination.
The concept proved to be an instant success, with the luxury country clothing store drawing in visitors from throughout the UK and across the world.
Scotland’s Premier Country Clothing Store
Over the years profits from the business have been ploughed back into the store, allowing for a series of investments and expansions which have seen the House of Bruar go from strength to strength, consolidating its position as the UK’s leading country clothing store.
The 11-acre site now plays host to a Fishing Department, 600 seat Restaurant, Food Hall, Delicatessen, Butchery, Homewares and Cook Shop, as well as expansive Menswear and Ladieswear departments which house the largest collection of cashmere clothing anywhere in the UK.
Continued investment in the House of Bruar’s Mail Order and Ecommerce divisions have seen these aspects of the business grow exponentially, increasing the reach of the company and making the House of Bruar’s signature brand of traditional country style available to customers all over the world.
