Now, here’s a place most tours of Scotland don’t stop – Dobbies. Anne said she wanted to show us where she shops … and Dobbies was very cool.

Dobbies was not only a garden center, but also had aisles of home decor items. Think Home Depot and Hobby Lobby mixed together into one gigantic super store. But they also have a cafeteria with tons and tons of choices for sandwiches, hot dishes and an array of desserts, you wouldn’t believe!  They even have a Baby Deli with such infant offerings as: A yummy scrummy tummy treat made up of  potatoes, carrots and peas,  Holly Bolly’s Chessy Cauli or Auntie Annie’s Sweet Sticky Pud Pud – because they want the entire family to feel welcomed. I’m thinking they should build some Dobbies in the States!

After you got your food, you could eat in a well-lit atrium or outside next to the pretty little pond which is next to their flowers aisles. All in all, I was impressed.

Dobbies actually was started back in 1865 and has 25 stores in the UK.

So if you ever need to buy a daisy in Scotland – here’s your place.
