In 2008 - excellent service. Hobbled into Elgin, late in the afternoon, with several broken spokes acquired en route from Fraserburgh (no other bike shops on the way). I was amazed at the owner's offer to mend it later that evening after going home for his tea first! So I was back mobile much sooner than expected.

I remember this shop as I had split a tyre on some sharp stones on the edge of the road a couple of miles outside Newton Stewart in 2005 - doesn't show in search for Bike shops in Newton Stewart as bike hire/repairs etc is just one of a number of services provided by HDI.
