Funky Scottish Loves...

...layering with a gorgeous 'statement' scarf.

French Connections‬. Our Funky Alternative To The Football...

This summer, thanks to Euro 2016, it seems all eyes are on France! Even if you aren't a football fan, there are other reasons to pay attention to our continental cousins. Here are our Top 3...
1. Style. The French are renowned for their chic, understated fashion sense. Think classic 'Chanel' stripes and a flair for making a simple outfit suddenly glamorous using just a scarf! See our collections in the Funky Scottish cafe-gallery-boutique and give your wardrobe a European twist!
2. Cafe Culture. We j'adore the continental approach to cafe culture here at Funky Scottish. So, we've fully embraced it with alfresco seating like the pavement cafes of Paris. It doesn't always have to be really sunny! Just wrap up in layers and warm up with your cafe au lait!
3. Relax A La Riviera. Inhabitants of quaint villages and coastal resorts in the South of France are expert at celebrating simple pleasures: slowing down, appreciating a good conversation, delicious food or the natural beauty of their surroundings. Their approach inspires us to do the same at home in Pittenweem. 
So, please join us! Step away from the sports channel, thrown on a pretty scarf, saunter down the street and idle away an afternoon in our Funky Scottish cafe-gallery-boutique.
Bonne journée! xo
