We visited the exhibition at Drinishader. Although up a narrow single track road it was worth the trip. The exhibition was well presented and not too large. We could only be used impressed reading how widely the product is used. The shop was shut and nobody was in attendance. Coffee was available, payment by honesty box. It is also a lovely spot.

Harris Tweed is a great place to shop for anyone who wants to bring home some unique clothing of fine quality for themselves,or as special gifts for friends or loved ones. There are also blankets and throws and some personalized items made on site.

We were made extremely welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We were allowed to try on the different styles and sizes to find the 'right fit'.Lots of lovely items and gifts all in Harris knitwear or tweed.
Well worth the detour off the main road

There's a display area with about twenty minutes of film, interviewing the different people involved in making and marketing tweed, including a filmed interview with the late Marion Campbell BEM, a quiet prizewinning tweed weaver. The hard work that goes into making tweed is remarkable, and the material itself is tough and warm. There's an old loom and weaving equipment in the shop attached... but beware the roads! Single track and surprisingly busy.

Fantastic exhibition of Harris tweed history, beautiful exhibits full of colour and texture and informative in a relaxed way.
Treasure trove of a shop, good range of products and prices.

Who would have thought that there was so much you could do with tweed! We spent ages here selecting gifts for various people. There was everything from dog collars to book marks and coats. The ladies were so friendly and patient with us. They showed us the artefacts in the shop and talked about the wool and the history a little bit. They then arranged to post our purchases back home for us as we had limited space on our bikes. The small museum at the back was interesting and showed tweed in the fashion industry and told us all we wanted to know about the production and the history of the manufacturing. What a great place.

Easy to miss as unpretentious outside. Good selection of tweed and tweed articles, impossible not to buy! Explanation in museum made it all come to life.

We almost drove by without stopping but it’s lucky that we did. The store owners were very friendly and encouraged us to visit the museum next door, which we did. It only takes a few minutes and turned out to be surprisingly interesting.

I ended up buying a whisky hip flask, bookmarks and Christmas tree decorations. I could have easily bought more, but this was just our first of many Harris Tweed shops that we would visit over the day.
