Directions to Persian Rugs from Aberdeen
There isn't really a choice of stores selling handmade Persian and Oriental rugs in the Aberdeen or Aberdeenshire area. Although a bit of a drive, when making such a substantial and important purchase it is well worth making the journey.
A Persian rug will last generations, if you do not wish to buy online Little-Persia is only a 2-3 hour drive away and we have by far the largest selection of handmade carpets in Scotland.
Over 1,200 unique rugs from all over Iran (Persia), Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkey, China and India are awaiting you in our Glasgow store.
From Aberdeen join the A90 and either continue towards Perth where you will join the M90, head south towards the Forth Road Bridge (A90) then merge to the M8 after crossing, or continue down the M90 until you reach Glasgow. Exit at the far end of the Kingston Bridge (junction 20) and just after the going through the traffic lights at the exit to the off-ramp take a right. From here continue straight until you go under a railbridge (Commerce Street will be on your left before you go under this but the street is cut off by bollards into two roads) then take a left, another left and a right. You will be on Commerce Street, go through one set of traffic lights and Little-Persia will be on your right just before second set of lights.
If you are coming to view specific rugs it is always helpful to contact us in advance and we can prepare for this - although we are always happy to show you as many rugs as you wish.
