Kirkwall Shoe Shop

Who are we?

Begg Shoes and Bags opened its doors in Kirkwall in March 2013 on the site which was previously trading as DE Shoes, and St Olaf Stores before that. The company, now in the fifth generation of the Begg family, has been in the shoe trade for an impressive 150 years, which is no mean feat.

We take pride in our customer service and will endeavour to assist you in your choice of product. All our staff are fully qualified to measure and fit children's shoes, thanks to initial training provided by Clarks Shoes and regular in store training. We are members of the Children's Foot Health Register, and our manager is a qualified professional shoe fitter through the Society of Shoe Fitters Association.

Where are we?

Situated in the heart of Kirkwall, along one of the main shopping areas at 26 Albert Street, we are easily accessible from the nearby car parks, and are only a 5 minute walk from Kirkwall Harbour or the Kirkwall Travel Centre. We also have the privilege of being 5 minutes walk away from one of Orkney's most visited tourist attractions, the spectacular St Magnus Cathedral.
