What a fabulous selection of books, gifts, jewellery and art work. Fabulous selection of cards too for all occasions. You could spend ages in here browsing. Staff are really helpful too. Bought some lovely jewellery, cards and 'smelly things'. Worth a visit when in Tarbert. Will return to look at artwork once I've decorated.

Bit disappointing, looked like it was going to be a local artisan gallery, but lots of other stuff including discounted books.

Hi Cathy - thanks for your comments, all feedback is really useful. I took over the business last autumn and am gradually introducing some local artworks which have proved popular, but we also have our very loyal customers to consider who return regularly to purchase some of our quality framed art prints, gift stock, jewellery, and the bargain books are...

An amazing art shop located in an amazing city. The paintings in here are immaculate and pay great attention to detail and several of the paintings are in the Kilmory Inn which I previously visited and have reviewed. Though the paintings can be very expensive it is definitely worth buying one
