Overview

We have been making our unique collection of quality pottery to use and enjoy, in Lochinver, for over 40 years. Each piece is entirely made and freehand painted by exceptionally skilled craftspeople. Visitors are welcome to look round the pottery and watch whatever processes are going on(more can be seen on weekday mornings!). You can also buy from our shop and our outdoor mosaics make a fantastic photo opportunity!

This pottery shop and factory are well worth a visit. We were a bit "end of day" on a hot "world cup" saturday, so there was nothing getting made, but the displays were lovely. It might take a few visits to buy a whole collection!...More
