Aquila displays works by talented local artists and designers, serving as perfect souvenirs or gifts. Many artisans present their works exclusively in the shop, and can’t be found on display anywhere else. Eve, the shop’s owner, is an artist herself, and you can buy some of her handmade jewelry at the shop. Other items on display include fashionable clothes and accessories, Scottish landscape paintings, and restored pieces of vintage furniture.

This is a fabulous little shop with a great range of gifts that are tasteful and will provide a lovely reminder of one's trip to Edinburgh. The person who helped me with my momento choice was both exceptionally helpful and engaging
