  2. Puddles & Sun childrens wear and quality toys at 56 Atholl Road, between 'Love your Sweets' and Williamson the Florist is very sad not to be part of your shopping guide....maybe next time.

  3. exciting shopping , love the place

  4. What an extraordinary display of bad manners Puddles & Sun! Craigatin House & Courtyard are perfectly entitled to publish their suggested shopping guide to their own client-base, without having you bulldoze your way into their blog in an act of shameless self-promotion. Your actions demonstrate an inability to behave in an appropriate manner and a clear lack of respect towards them.

  5. It is with incredulous disbelief that a simple comment made by Puddles & Sun on your blog has been totally misinterpreted and has since received such a dreadful indictment regarding its retail practices. Puddles & Sun was well aware why Craigatin did not include it on their montage of shops in Pitlochry. The shop, having only been open four months, had been subject to an act of wanton vandalism by a local teenager. Puddles & Sun’s sadness was because, at the time the photographs were taken around Pitlochry, the shop was not in a fit state to be included....hence the comment ‘maybe next time’. Hopefully our clientele will be as shocked as we are at the opinion expressed by the author of the previous comment.
