I will be coming home to Glasgow on holiday in June and may need to indulge in some UAS therapy. Are there any shops with a decent range of Ukes in or around Glasgow / Edinburgh, or even in mail order in England.

Does anyone know if WOSUP, the proposed Uke club in Glasgow ever got off the ground?

Not aware of any decent shops in Glasgow or Edinburgh

My fave UK shops are Eagle music and Southern Uke store. Also Highly strung for more entry level instruments. All are real stores, but are great with mail order - best thing about them is that they are real shops run by real instrument players - you can actually phone them and speak to someone who gives a damn and understands your requirements. All are great.

I second both the recommendation for Southern Ukulele and Eagle, though I haven't purchased through Eagle they were very helpful on the phone, SU is also excellent, brought two Ukes from them and got next day delivery as standard, ask for Paul he's the Ukulele specialist and he knows his stuff!
