Innerleithen is a beautiful town in the Scottish Borders. With wool and knitwear behind its growth, it's the proud home of Scotland's annual Border Games.
Find Haus & Co on the High Street. Run by Gary and Gary (both from the creative industries), this independent lifestyle store has a stylishly curated selection of Scandinavian-inspired gifts and homewares: think signature pieces from Ferm Living (Denmark), textiles from Klippan (Sweden). True craftsmanship and ethical sourcing permeate their choices, whether working with brands big or small. Got a space to reimagine? Book an interior design consultation with your flat white.
Their conscientious approach extends to Haus Coffee. More counter than café, this compact affair has a few wooden window seats where the Garys' guests can relax with a slice of select cake. Artisanal coffee is from Williams and Johnson, tea is from Pekoe.
Stroll along the Tweed or visit the town's spring before rejoining your journey.
