This barn of a shop has truly awful stock. It’s a throwback to the Scotland I remember in the 1960s and 1970s. I found it embarrassing to be there at the same time as foreign visitors. I don’t know what they must think!

This is one of the most strange places I've ever been! Loads of tat on sale & 'home baked' shortbread. The odd artwork is not for sale & is a bit freaky. A very strange place in the middle of a beautiful island. Go to...More

My husband and I both walked around this 'gallery' open mouthed and speechless! If tat, shortbread and butter bars are your thing then this is the place to go. The walls and rather bizarrely some ceilings are covered in paintings (and I use the term...More

Called in briefly after visiting Easdale Island. The owners are really friendly but the shop / gallery is slightly strange, with food mixed in with touristy items for sale on every shelf and every corner and strange original artwork on the walls. Worth a look...More

I honestly can't find words to describe the bizarreness of this experience. The never-ending gallery is piled high with trinkets and tea-towels. The art is the work of C John Taylor. He has a particular way of drawing the human face which means that all...More

Sorry not much to say about this just that we wouldn't bother wasting our time going again, it was like a mausoleum. It was a massive maze of rooms with some very dodgy art work ( hey ho - beauty in the eye of the...More

Worth a visit just to corroborate the previous trip advisor reviews. Full of tat and weird music! Back to the 1980s.

The huge coach park may give a clue to where the main income for this strange spot comes from. The window displays then give an inkling as to what's in store - dusty plastic deer, dodgy plaster statues of Greek figures and faded tea towels....More

Amazed at some reviews as we have been here before. Took our friends on this visit and they loved it too. It's not your average tacky gift shop - this place has something for everyone. We bought a tweed bag and shortbread and our friend...More
