    Hi Lucylou

    Factory shops etc in Scotland - from my 2003 Good Deal Directory, so you would have to check before going that they were still there.

    Babygro – Kirkcaldy
    Lochleven Mills Kinross – Knitwear and clothing
    Clarks shoes – Parkead Forge, Glasgow and MacArthur Glen, Livingston
    The Factory Shop, Carluke and Burnside Mill, Cupar – clothing, household, electrical
    TKMaxx – all over. (Worth a visit for leather small things, wallets, etc and handbags, towels, sheets and duvet covers and things like vases, photo albums and frames. And clothes if you have a few hours to spare going through the racks)
    Gleneagles Knitwear, Auchterarder – factory shop
    Edinburgh Crystal, Penicuik – crystal of every description, café too (watch for glasses being different heights if you want several and for tiny bubbles in the glass. Normally though you can’t see why things are seconds)
    K Shoes, Dundee – Factory shop (FS)
    BMJ Power, Gt Western Road, Glasgow – power tools, etc
    Capones, Glasgow and Coatbridge – wallpaper. Permanent discount outlet
    EASY, Edinburgh – architectural salvage yard. Great, but don’t wear good clothes to rummage round!
    Rejects, Kirkcaldy – everything for the house. “Curtain dept larger than Harrods”, “private car park for 300 cars”
    John Baillie Carpets, Paisley – permanent discount outlet
    Sunrite Blinds Factory Shop, Edinburgh
    Cotton Print Factory Shop, Glasgow – all kinds of fabrics
    Out Lines, Auchterarder – material . Permanent discount outlet
    Denby Factory Shop, Livingston
    Gleneagles Crystal, Broxburn – FS
    MacKinnon Mills FS, Coatbridge – woollen mill
    Scottish Fine Soaps, Falkirk – FS
    Stuart Crystal, Crieff – crystal, china seconds (Wedgwood etc), also tearoom
    North Cape, near Stirling – FS. Outdoor clothing

    I got some Black patent penny loafers for £20 from the MacArthur Glen factory outlet and went back later and got another pair. They have been worn almost to a stand still! Great.

    There are more but mostly the ones at the outlet villages. Hope someone can add more to these

    Good hunting
