My mother and sister enjoyed it just as much as I did, a great place to visit and take time to look around.

We have been to Duncan House several times over the years and while it is worth going in just to see the beautiful things, we have recently found it hard to leave without buying something. It just seems to be much higher quality than other stuff that we see around and my wife is the very happy owner of two... More

Our visit to Duncan House was to be one of the highlights of our holiday . The drive down the single-track road was fun and to find that real craftsmanship is still the order of the day in this stunning corner of the island warmed this old engineers heart almost as much as the pleasure of meeting and purchasing a...

Duncan House is a truly magnificent place to visit where they hand make exquisite Celtic jewellery. They are located in a beautiful part of the Isle of Skye. Whilst there, I purchased two delightful silver rings with the Flora's Knot design. One for my wife and one for myself.

Not only is this where you absolutely must head for a milestone piece of jewellery, but if you're going to be anywhere vaguely in the region of Skye and are at all appreciative of beautiful artefacts, you have to drive out the Elgol road to visit the lovely Garth and see his wares. His artistry and craftsmanship are breathtaking and... More

I bought a ring from Garth's shop back in 2012 when my wife and I were gallavanting about Scotland and Ireland. While we were staying in Fort William we saw a circular which had an advertisement for Garth's shop. The schedule I had meticulously prepared months before actually had time for a side trip, so onto the ferry and to... More

Garth Duncan's celtic jewellery far surpasses any jewellery that is offered elsewhere on the Isle of Skye. The craftsmanship is amazing and Garth's knowledge and skills as a master goldsmith are evident in every piece. The setting for his gallery and workshop are worth a visit alone - but the jewellery......don't miss it!

You don't want to miss this class act, if you like fine jewelry, celtic crafting and "traditional" knives. It is a lovely drive to Duncan Keep and Strathaird and look for the magic white Persian kitty.
