Have purchased a few gifts and prints from here.Quite an eclectic mix but definitely reflects the flavour of Scotland.Some of the paintings may appear expensive but they are a one off and reflect many tastes. Staff very friendly and I never feel rushed.

Rather staid and not very original artwork. Would have expected more from this part of Scotland. More like a version of W H Smith. There must be better
