One of the country’s most famous fabrics, Harris Tweed is still hand-woven using local wool. You will be able to buy everything from tweed blankets and cushions, to clothes and even stuffed toys.

Take a trip to the delightful East Neuk of Fife, famous for its pottery. The quaint fishing villages are home to local potters’ workshops including Crail Pottery and Pittenweem Pottery.
