my girls aged 5 and 7 had a great time painting their dogs and they were so excited to see the finished products. It's now a great wee reminder of there fab holiday to stornoway.

Like most places on Lewis, the inside of this little pottery/coffee shop has much more to offer than the outside would imply. We arrived at around 3:30pm and were immediately made most welcome when all we wanted was coffee and a cake. However, on realising they had some stock of old pottery goods that matched some we got many years ago, we were able to select items from the stockroom and add to our discontinued set. Lovely homemade cake, great service and I would assume that when they open their new place in Stornoway next week it will be a must-see for all. We didn't do any pottery painting this time, but that was not a problem at all, and we will be back - some day!

Our kids had a great time painting a variety of pots, plates and bowls which were fired in the kiln for us overnight so that we could collect them the following afternoon. We are very pleased with the finished products and thought it was good value for money too. The owner was very friendly, welcoming and good with the kids. A great rainy day activity with young children!

If anyone is travelling to Lewis with kids, Paint a pot is a must. Yesterday we arranged via Facebook to have a session with three two year olds and two babys under age of one. Recipe for disaster having children in room full of ceramics you would think... but there they have thought of everything to cater for all ages. There was a highchair, a train set to keep kids amused between times of painting (short attention spans need frequent change!) and tea/coffee/hot choc/juice all provided. The adults got more into the painting than the kids at times. They provide books so the less creative of us can pretend to be artistic too! Claire took such good care of us and got the balance just right in giving us space to chat, technical advice when needed and supervision to make sure we had half decent things to collect from the kiln. The children ran up and down in the room however this was not frowned upon at all. This is a great activity for rainy and fine days, for kids to be kids and adults to chill. Highly highly recommended - thank you Paint a Pot!!

Lovely morning out with our niece and nephew. Warmly greeted, kids really well looked after. We picked up our pots two days later, as promised, and everything was just great! Would definitely recommend, would definitely return. Thank you!!
