This is a typical gift shop come gallery with some interesting print, posters etc and the general bric-a-brac one would expect to find in a general stationary shop. It is worth visiting if you want to by a memento from the area and to spend a few minutes in a typical Scottish rainy afternoon. However, I would certainly not rate... More

Good range of quality local art, not at all naff. Many decent seascapes to choose from & very reflective of the local landscape .

Spotted some paintings on a day trip to the gallery and 6 months later emailed Steve who couldn't have been more helpful to get them to us. Can't say how good the service was and the paintings are even more beautiful in our home. Thanks Steve.
