Shoppers will want to check out the Scottish Wool Centre, Main Street (tel. 01877/382-850; www.scottishwoolcentre.co.uk), which sells a big selection of knitwear and woolens from surrounding mills, including jackets, hats, rugs, sweaters, and cashmere items. It also houses an amphitheater that holds a textile display area, along with live specimens of different breeds of Scottish sheep (but no clones yet). Spinning and weaving demonstrations are presented, and baby lambs fill a children's petting zoo. Admission to the shop is free, but the exhibition costs £5 for adults or £10 per family. The entire complex is open daily from 10am to 6pm, with exhibitions at 11am, noon, 2pm, and 3pm.
