Since opening over 8 years ago, Aurora has grown from a mainland-based business to having three locations in Scotland, including one in Shetland. In addition to selling gifts and jewellery, Aurora specialises in kilt hire, offering a variety of tartans and jacket types.

When it comes to kilt hire, Aurora offers six different tartans, including the popular "Spirit of Shetland" tartan, which is uniquely made for Aurora and not available for hire, only available for purchase. The tartan features colours that represent the Shetland landscape, such as grey, yellow, and blue. Other tartans available for hire include:

  • Scotland Forever
  • Highland Granite
  • Black Isle
  • Northern Lights
  • Modern Douglas
  • Black Watch.

Jackets come in two types:

  • Prince Charlie
  • Wallace

All kilt hires come with accessories, including a sporran, belt, sgian dubh, kilt pin, shoes, and flashes. Socks and shirts can be purchased separately. Shirts are available in white or black and are available in 2 different styles, formal and Ghillie. Children's sizes are also available.

For those interested in purchasing tartan trousers or accessories, Aurora has a range of options available. The Spirit of Shetland, Orkney Heather and Slate, and Northern Lights tartans are available in scarves, wraps, ties, caps, purses, and bags, making great gifts.

Aurora also offers package deals that include engagement and wedding rings. These rings can be customised to your own design or chosen from the display in the shop. The rings feature Viking Runes that translate to health and happiness and are available in gold, silver, and platinum.

Keep in mind that kilt purchase orders require 4-6 weeks' notice, while jacket orders can take up to 12 weeks. To book a fitting or learn more about Aurora's services, visit their website or stop by their shop.
