  • An exhibition centre and craft studios which include a silversmith, a weaver of Scottish weather, glass craft and basket maker. It's a great day out in Craft Town Scotland! Had a fab time, but make sure to come either Friday or Saturday as most of the studios are closed earlier in the week.
  • I would give an extra star if studio's were open. I was visiting on a Tuesday.. best days are Thursday, Friday & Saturday.. The centre is open 7 days a week.. plenty of varied ranged priced crafts available to suit all pockets. Many of which are desinged and made in the town. Nice cafe in the centre with some local or home-made products.
  • A great find ..... stunning crafts .... beautiful surroundings and great coffee
