Authentic Scottish Souvenirs to Bring Home

With rugged landscapes, rich history and vibrant culture, it’s only natural that you’d like to bring home a souvenir that reminds you of your time in Scotland. But don’t settle for generic trinkets that will get lost in a cupboard, choose authentic souvenirs that go beyond the ordinary. Here is a selection of our favourite souvenir ideas.

A square foot of Scottish land

Arguably the best way to bring a slice of Scotland home with you is by purchasing a slice of Scottish land. Buy as little as one square foot of a Scottish estate and that land will remain yours for as long as you’d like. You can even pass down the generations when the time comes. And alongside your piece of land comes the a title of nobility. With no direct translation into modern English, that means you have the right to use the Lord or Lady title. There is no better souvenir to bring back from your trip to Scotland. And the best part? You can visit your plot of land as frequently as you like, giving you a lifelong excuse to revisit the beautiful country.

Tartan textiles

Something that Scotland is renowned for is tartan. Bring home authentic tartan textiles in the form of a cosy scarf, a blanket or even a kilt if you want to fully embrace Scottish culture. Each pattern associates with a particular region of Scotland, allowing you to add a touch of sentiment to your souvenir. Symbolic yet functional, you can continue to utilise your authentic souvenir when you return home. Shop locally or visit a mill that produces tartan products to ensure that you’re purchasing a genuine piece of Scottish craftsmanship.

Scotch whisky

Whether you are an avid whisky drinker or not, no trip to Scotland is complete without scotch whisky. A quintessential Scottish souvenir, you can savour the taste of Scotland long after your trip has ended. From single malts to blended whiskies, you can take home the flavour profile that you prefer. Why not participate in a distillery tour to learn about the background of the whisky then pick up a bottle to bring home as a souvenir.

Celtic jewellery

During your trip, you’re sure to come across traditional Celtic jewellery. The perfect souvenir to bring home, you can choose a piece that you adore from the array of designs and styles available. Choose traditional Scottish symbols such as thistles, Celtic knots or the Luckenbooth heart in the form of rings, necklaces, bracelets, brooches and more. A great souvenir to take home for both yourself and for loved ones.

Traditional shortbread
