Despite being more than 4,000 miles away, the little town of Dunedin is a sister city to Stirling, Scotland. This unique distinction makes Dunedin quite unique in and of itself; holding its own Highland Games each year in spring, when Scottish heritage clans descend upon the city to celebrate their roots. The name Dunedin comes from the Scottish Gaelic “Dun Eideann”, which refers to the Scottish capital of Edinburgh. While Dunedin really gets involved with its Scottish side, you certainly don’t have to have Scottish heritage yourself to enjoy this brilliant Florida city!

A treasure trove of intimate antique shops help visitors find treasures of their very own, ranging from housewares to jewelry and everything in between.
