Onwards North to Loch Ness to The Clansman where we have a large selection of local artists and craft persons whose work is both on display and for sale.
People like Marjory Tait a very well known Celtic Artist whose work is much sought after and is very much in the vein of Outlander,the popular television series which is set in a time traveling genre which transports one to The Jacobite period.If you haven't read the books by Diana Gabaldon you can purchase these in our shop here at Loch Ness.
One of the other unique aspects in this shop is we have a wonderful range of second hand semi precious and precious rings carefully selected and sourced by Derek Presly of The Midas Touch,very popular with visiting tourists particularly from The USA

Tartan is the other most popular Scottish gift and we have the lot ,scarves ,ties,bags,towels,kilts and toys and not to forget the ultimate taratn skip cap just right for the golf course.If it is a” bunnet “Scots for a cap you would like we have a great grange of tweed caps which is very much a fashion trend at the moment after the television series Peaky Blinders.
For the more discerning guests we have some wonderful cashmere scarves and some top of the range Single Malt whiskys with a very special bottle of The Macallan at £4500,which I am led to believe is a bargain price for a collector and a seriously good inflation
