If you haven’t been to Morgan McVeigh’s recently, then we can recommend the trip.
The popular store on the A96 to the north of Inverurie has been given a new lease of life by new owners Brian and Janey Welsh, who have brought a friendly and personal touch to the business. They’ve brought a special sparkle to the home cooked café menu and expanded the food hall, gift department and the clothing boutique. The atmosphere is cosy and welcoming, with extensive
You can relax with a coffee and cake by the real fire in the restaurant, admiring the work of local artists, or take tea on the terrace in warmer weather. Get there early for an excellent cooked breakfast or try the French toast with maple syrup and bacon. For lunch, there’s always something appealing on the specials board, as well as a choice of soups, comfortingly cheesy macaroni, paninis or baked potatoes. On Sundays there’s even a roast dinner – but whatever day of the week you pop in, there’s much to admire.
It’s the perfect place to go if you’re looking for a gift, simply because the new team put so much effort into sourcing something a little bit different. How many people source their hand-blown Christmas decorations directly from a factory

The food hall has lots of yummy new lines, including Morgan McVeigh’s own branded goodies with their distinctive Highland Cow logo.
In the clothing department, you’ll find favourite brands like Scottish favourites Emreco and casual wear lines from Joules for women and children and Betty Barclay ladieswear. Unlike many boutiques, Morgan McVeigh’s stock up to a size 22 in most lines. Janey is blessed with good taste, so there’s lots of great choice whether you’re looking for a waterproof jacket for walking the dog, or something fabulous for a night on the town; and from now to the end of February, Morgan McVeigh’s are offering a 30% reduction off marked price on all winter fashion stock, including Frank Lyman partywear.
