About Us

The Wandering Scott was established in 2007 by Caroline and John Kohler, with Caroline running the day to day operations.

Caroline was born and raised in Ayrshire, Scotland and emigrated to Canada in 1995. Caroline regularly travelled out of town to satisfy her need for treats from back home. Caroline was searching for a variety of British products, more than what is generally available in Canadian retailers and other British food shops. This prompted her to start the journey to fulfill her dream of becoming a shop owner offering a wide selection of products.

The quest for the name of the shop was not a difficult one. Caroline wanted to include her family name “Scott”, and “Wandering” seemed fitting to represent all the Scots, English, Irish and Welsh who have also “wandered” over the pond.
