My favourite place along the Hebridean Way. Tea and food for the soul as well as amazing fudge. Absolutely beautiful prints that capture the surroundings, and such a wonderful warm welcome for us weary cyclists. Thank you Jane.

We entered during a community meeting open to the shop. The owner welcomed us to browse the wonderful cards and small craft items. Walked away with some nice small gifts. You will pass this on your way to the Gearannan Blackhouse village.

A relatively new gallery located on the road to the broch. Parking available outside. Smallish shop area but some good quality gifts including local soaps and some lovely pictures. Well worth a short visit
