You can visit our Edinburgh shop Tuesday to Saturday, 10am -4pm (hours may be different during holidays). If you aren’t sure what you are looking for or need help, our friendly and knowledgeable team of volunteers are on hand to help you.

All of the profits made through the Guide shop go directly back into Girlguiding Scotland for funding opportunities, girl experience and many of our projects. So, by shopping with us you are helping give girls across Scotland adventure, fun and friendships - thank you.

Accessing the building

Our HQ at 16 Coates Crescent is a very old and very beautiful building but this means that it can pose some difficulties for accessibility. At the front there are 4 steps to the front door, with a handrail. This is the main access to the building and shop.

For those who are unable to use stairs, you can still access one of our meeting rooms on the lower ground floor. It is best to call ahead on 0131 225 3483 to make sure we are prepared for your visit. Access is on William Street South Lane and if you come by car we can make a parking space available. It is accessed via the 4th garage opening on the left. Once parked, please ring the doorbell or phone the above number and we will come down and meet you.

From there we have a disabled toilet and accessible meeting room. If you’re visiting for shopping, we can bring any of the products you would like to see to you in the accessible meeting room.

Making Girlguiding Scotland accessible is important to us so if you have any questions or need any other adaptations to make your visit better please don’t hesitate to let us know.

Parking is metered and we’re also directly opposite the ‘West End-Princes Street’ tram stop.

If you are unable to visit us in store for any reason you can shop online, by phone or by post. Visit our More ways to shop page to find out how.
