What a fabulous selection of books, gifts, jewellery and art work. Fabulous selection of cards too for all occasions. You could spend ages in here browsing. Staff are really helpful too. Bought some lovely jewellery, cards and 'smelly things'. Worth a visit when in Tarbert. Will return to look at artwork once I've decorated.

An amazing art shop located in an amazing city. The paintings in here are immaculate and pay great attention to detail and several of the paintings are in the Kilmory Inn which I previously visited and have reviewed. Though the paintings can be very expensive it is definitely worth buying one
