Stop off at the Shetland Jewellery workshop in Weisdale to see craftsmen making exceptional pieces inspired by Scandinavian mythology, local wildlife and traditional Celtic designs.

For more island arts and crafts, head to the Outer Hebrides and visit the Isle of Harris where you can peruse stunning local paintings inspired by the spectacular surrounding landscape at the Ardbuidhe Cottage Gallery near Drinishader or enjoy the cosy atmosphere of the Skoon Art Café.

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.
