One of Britain’s oldest covered shopping arcades, built in 1827, Argyll Arcade is a covered street featuring the biggest selection of 32 jewellers shops all under one roof. John Baird takes the credit for its ornate iron-framed hammerbeam roof which is as pleasing to the eye as the glittering contents of the shop window displays. The L-shaped arcade was built in 1904 and to this day houses an array of local jewellery designers’ shops as well as antique jewellers’ shops.
