A Legacy of Craftsmanship

March 26, 2024|CAMPBELLS OF BEAULY

Join us as we step back in time inside the store and workshop of Campbells of Beauly, the iconic Scottish Highlands country tailor and outfitter, known as ‘The Highlands Tweed House’

Campbells of Beauly is a family-run country tailor and outfitter located near Inverness in the Scottish Highlands. In operation since 1858, John & Nicola Sugden became the new owners of the iconic store and workshop in 2015. Keen for the business to remain true to its heritage, John & Nicola have created a retail emporium full of old-world charm, where fabric takes centre stage. Harris Tweed is in abundance; its earthy colours echo the landscape outside. As tweed mercers, they have hundreds of tweeds for their clients to choose from.

As a client of Campbell’s of Beauly, you become a part of the ongoing narrative between the land and the people who live and work it. Harris Tweed is produced in the same way as it has been for generations, handwoven by the inhabitants of the Outer Hebrides. Spun in weavers’ sheds on the Isle of Harris, its unique handcrafted production made it the first fabric in the world to be officially regulated.

The quality of the craftsmanship at Campbells has earned the business a reputation unsurpassed in the Highlands, with the company often referred to as ‘The Highland Tweed House’. Campbells’ history is one of legacy, a continuing passion for the provenance of material, and attention to detail. This approach continues under the stewardship of John and Nicola, the warm and welcoming custodians of a craft that supports the Harris community while, at the same time, celebrating the heritage of Scotland.
