Tain, Ross Shire, IV19 1LZ

    The Tain Pottery and Visitor Centre is easily located on the A9, just south of the Royal Burgh of Tain and will be an ideal place to break your journey or seek refuge from inclement weather.

    Located just south of the Royal Burgh of Tain, The Tain Pottery is housed in a renovated farm steading and offers an inspiring range of pottery, all of which is produced by hand. While wandering freely around the building, witness the skill and expertise required to transform raw clay into the distinctive yet durable pieces displayed in the shop.

    The airy decorating studio overlooks the surrounding Highland landscape which provides a constant source of inspiration for the original designs, all of which are individually hand painted by a team of artists. The pottery’s flagship design ‘Glenaldie’ incorporates the Scottish national emblem while flowers, berries and sea creatures are other popular motifs. The design team are also more than happy to discuss individual commissions from visitors. All stoneware is fired to a temperature of 1280 degrees centigrade allowing the finished pieces to be used in microwaves, ovens, freezers and dishwashers. 

    The shop displays the complete Tain Pottery range, all of which is highly collectable, functional and makes an excellent gift. In addition to discounted and special edition pieces, all purchases can be personalised with inscriptions. Shipping can be arranged and the entire collection can be viewed and purchased via the pottery’s website.
