Stepping Stones Gallery No longer open now as the owner, Aida, has moved onto other ventures. However, while open I would say this was easily the best Art Gallery and Craft Outlet in the North West Highlands of Scotland, and the bonus was that it was run by the nicest person you would be ever likely to meet. It also had a truly outstanding collection of greetings cards! It was my pleasure for years to frame lots of beautiful artworks for the gallery, as well as sell my own range of greetings cards and landscape photographs through this wonderfully situated outlet. Many artists and customers will have fond memories of this place which the owner made very special.

Pool House is a luxury run guest house on the Shores of Loch Ewe, Wester Ross. Everything about it is exceptional, to the stunning scenery in which it is situated, to its sumptuous accommodation and to the wonderful family who have worked tirelessly for decades to create this exceptional place. The Pool House is also an historic house dating back 300 years with a long and interesting history detailed on their website.
Over the years I have had the pleasure of framing innumerable wonderful works of art, many truly one off pieces, for the Pool House. Having stayed in the Pool House and dined there I can vouchsafe that anyone going there will have a truly wonderful time!
