Where service matters

“We don’t just sell boots, we fit them”. Whether this applies to hiking boots or to ski boots, this is only one of the personal professional services offered by manager Colin Lyon and his team at Craigdon Mountain Sports Inverness Ltd. The shop is easy to find on Academy Street, Inverness, near the bus station and sells a wide range of general and specialist outdoor gear. Colin has recently taken over ownership of this prestigious outdoor shop and hopes to build on its solid reputation within the outdoor industry.

Discerning customers already know the benefit of shopping at Craigdon Mountain Sports Inverness, and new customers will find all the gear they require coupled with a wealth of expertise and advice from the knowledgeable staff. As Colin says, “most of my staff have been with me a long time and really know their way around outdoor clothing and equipment. We work together as a team in an effort to provide the customer with a brilliant shopping experience. We always have time to chat to customers and find out exactly what they need and want for their chosen activity”. A quick look round the shop reveals a vast range of clothing and equipment for walking, hiking, climbing, mountaineering, skiing, or just being comfortable in the great outdoors. Although adults are well catered for, Colin is especially proud of his children’s range. He says, “having a young son myself, I understand the need for good quality, value for money children’s clothing that will enable them to get out and about with Mum and Dad”.

With winter approaching, Colin has carefully chosen an excellent range of skis, skiing clothing and equipment to let customers fully enjoy the pleasures of the piste. With experienced staff on hand, the shop can custom fit ski boots, advise on the correct ski/binding combinations and offer the finest skiing equipment for expert and novice alike. Couple this with professional ski servicing and you have the perfect one stop shop. As Colin says, “we have the top brands, we have the choice, we have the team, and we have the expert knowledge. Why go anywhere else”?
