Tiso pride themselves on customer care and the expertise to get you wherever you want to go - From the top of a Munro to the very Summit of Everest. What makes them experts in outdoor gear? Their staff have been to both! Yes, you heard me... BOTH! Plus a whole lot more of amazing experiences that they use to help guide you to the perfect product be it walking boots fitted by their trained Boot Fitters in store or the best tent for a wild camping adventure that will withstand the harshest of conditions. Tiso are your outdoor clothing and adventure specialists and have a unique history since 1962. They are still a family run business to this day which means you are guaranteed a personal approach to your visit.
