All orders on this site will be charged in British Pounds Sterling and the VAT is automatically deducted from your cart.
CAN I HAVE FREE POSTAGE?
We all like free postage and we have considered offering it but the costs would have to be absorbed somewhere else (i.e. the price of the clothes going up). This is a genuine charge that we have to pay and therefore we have no alternative other than to ask you to contribute to this cost. We may run promotions on occasion offering free shipping, to be the first to know about these please sign up to our newsletter.

WHAT IF MY GOODS ARE FAULTY?
HOW DO I RETURN GOODS?
Please fill out the returns form enclosed in your package as this will help speed up the process. Any comments regarding the reason for the return are greatly appreciated. Then send returns by registered mail, insured for its full value to:
CUSTOMER RETURNS, Campbell’s of Beauly, Highland Tweed House, High Street, Beauly, IV4 7BU, Scotland, UK.
The customer is responsible for the postage costs incurred when returning an item. Goods must be placed back into their original packaging with the return slip and we recommend that you send it recorded delivery (first or second class) from the post office. Campbell’s of Beauly cannot be held responsible for any item that does not arrive here. Delivery charges are non-refundable, unless the item is returned within 14 days of the order being placed. If you are returning goods from outside the UK please read the following carefully:
Many items that are returned to us get held up at customs due to incorrect labelling resulting in substantial customs charges and in some cases goods being returned to the sender (you). This often occurs to items coming back from the U.S.; we are unable to accept, or refund, any such costs associated with return goods levied by customs or carriers. Please label both the outside of the package and the airway bill with the following phrase: ‘BRITISH RETURN GOODS’ This is very important as it prevents you, the customer, being charged with any import duty or tax on goods that are simply being returned to the UK for exchange or refund.
HOW DO I EXCHANGE GOODS?
As a small retailer we do not hold great quantities of stock and so the fastest way to secure the item you need is to place a new order. Place a NEW order for the correct size or colour required and return your original purchase to us.
If you receive an exchange repeat postage charges will be refunded. You will have to send the unwanted item back to us at your own expense and it must be in its original condition and packaging. We recommend that any returns are sent by recorded or special delivery ‘signed for post’ as we are unable to accept any responsibility for items that do not reach us. A Proof of postage is not sufficient. Customer Returns, Campbell’s of Beauly, Highland Tweed House, High Street, Beauly, IV4 7BU, Scotland, UK
HOW LONG MIGHT A REFUND TAKE?
Once we have received the returned item/s the PayPal, Stripe or Amazon account or card used for the purchase will be credited with the cost of the goods. Please make sure you send any returns via registered post with proof of posting for your own peace of mind. Your credit card company will typically take 4-7 working days to process the refund.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I CANCEL AN ORDER PRIOR TO DESPATCH?
We will issue you a full refund including the P&P. If you have recently placed an order with us and wish to cancel it, please email us as soon as possible at email@example.com quoting your order reference number, the date the order was placed, your name and post-code.
