Lovely craft shop with many home-crafted goods. The owners were very friendly and we were invited to view the work area to see what they were making. Spent quite a long time talking with the owners who provided many interesting details relating to the Island. Worth popping in.

Visited this beautiful little gallery and shop on the way back from the Gearannan Blackhouse Village. So glad to have stopped here. Absolutely stunning art and craft work on display and for sale. Could have spent all day in here - a very inspiring and peaceful little grotto :)

The artist was there and we enjoyed our chat as we looked at all the lovely things. Couldn't find a blue pig but did come away... More

I went with a friend as a book we found locally suggested dropping in. I am so glad we did. It is a little off the beaten track (although no more than most places on Lewis for a city dweller like me!). The art in there (a great deal of which is Jane (the owner)'s own, produced just next to... More

Great little studio offering artworks by the owner and an unusual range of other gift items. Really sweet (& tiny) tearoom. Well worth a visit!

What a surprising find! A group of us stopped for coffee and managed to squeeze around a table for coffee and tea of flavours to suit all tastes. Shortbread, muffins and fudge all followed with eccentric banter and unflappable service which was off the wall and great fun. Do drop in, it is really fun!!

Becoming a local institution offering the owners excellent art work, bought in art, coffee and free range eggs, cards and so much more. Pop in and keep the blue pig flag flying.
