I’m really enjoying drawing at the moment and have been experimenting with colour. ‘Looking up no 2’

The Skye-made gift guide (for those who can’t visit this summer!)

So this popped into our inbox yesterday - another Skye artist @katietunnartist has put together a lovely little guide to her favourite places on the island, and we're one of them! Thanks Katie - it's lovely to see how many people and businesses are supporting each other at this difficult time

Following yesterday’s further restrictions on people gathering together, we don’t want to be a part of the problem, (not that we ever have hoardes of visitors at one time!!), so we’ve taken the decision today to close for the foreseeable future. We have our website where you can see all Peter’s wonderful paintings and prints and purchase online, so we’ll see you on the other side of this crisis! Stay well!

As you can imagine, this was a very easy job to say 'yes' to! And the whisky is delicious, just in case you were wondering!

The nostalgic design inspiration for our Scalasaig label comes from travel posters and postcards from the 1920s and 30s. There is even a nod to vintage Enid Blyton’s ‘Famous Five’ helping to capture our spirit of adventure in seeking out treasures of liquid gold.

Isle of Skye based illustrator, Peter McDermott, has captured our mood perfectly.

I am going to be closing my Christmas samples sale page tomorrow, so thought I'd show you some of the pieces that are left.....

Each of these pieces are handmade and won't be continued into 2020 so it's a great chance to get a one-off unique piece!

Happy shopping!
