Business Description

Originated as a family business in the North East of Scotland in 1866 when Alexander Begg started his own shoemaking business in the rural village of New Pitsligo.

Now incorporating eight shops and a website, the business is run by Garek Begg, fifth generation of the family, along with his wife Fiona and his son Donald Begg. Indeed, Garek’s grandfather was from Sanday & so the Begg family’s links with the Orkney Isles remain.

The core values of the shops remain: offering comfortable shoes in a world always looking for more style but retaining the best fitting properties; knowledgeable service; real value for money product which is not always the cheapest or easy to recognise.

The family ensures the shops retain their edge by providing a first class customer service and by working closely with leading branded manufacturers who offer the best value and quality in modern day shoemaking.

Brands stocked in Kirkwall include Clarks, Ecco, Rieker, Gabor, Timberland, Skechers & El Naturalista to name but a few.
