Visit ladies’ fashion to find that perfect outfit for any occasion.  Bubbles is the name of their ladies’ fashion department, and they carry a select range of designer brands.  Whether you’re looking for evening wear or a wedding outfit, coats and snuggly sweaters, or belts, hats, and scarves, you can find it at Brodie Countryfare.  If you’re looking for fashion that suits your active lifestyle, then check out the ladies’ leisurewear department.  Top quality fleeces, jackets, winter wear, and active wear are to be had in this department.  Men are not left out, either!  The men’s wear department has everything for the casual man—casual trousers, shirts, sweaters, and sweatshirts in quality brands.  Peak Performance is their outdoor range with all kinds of versatile active wear for men. 

If you’re shopping for the home, as well, then wander through Brodie’s extensive giftwares department.  Here you will find all kinds of lovely items to help you create a beautiful interior.  From kitchenware and accessories to bathroom styles and furniture, Brodie has it.  They also offer a candle shop, soft furnishings, and thousands of gift ideas.  As well, they handle local art and pottery, including Highland Stoneware and Tain Pottery.
