Together with the High Street stores on offer, other shopping delights include, LK Benett, Urban Outfitters, Borders, L’Occitane and the new Apple store – the first Apple store in Scotland. But when it comes to shopping, the Southside doesn’t disappoint, offering an eclectic mix of specialist shops and boutiques.
