I visited this shop for the first time the other week and I loved it! It has many interesting items such as books, hand crafted wands (one which I bought for myself!), fairies, dragons, crystals, and many more. I encourage people to visit this shop...More

Had lunch nearby and passed this shop on the way to Holyrood. Friendly and knowledgeable owner helped us select perfect unusual gifts. For those who want something a little different this shop is a must.

Having already visited a lot of occult shops, but this one was really outstanding. The scent and athmosphere was cozy and homely, and everything was crammed with cute or strange stuff, a lot of things for Wiccans, but also everyday-items for everyone who likes it...More

While The Wyrd Shop claims to be the oldest esoteric store in Edinburgh, and perhaps Scotland itself, don't let that fool you in to thinking this store is dated! The staff are kind, helpful, and most energetic. When I visited, I mentioned I was looking...More
