It is quite astounding the number and variety of talented, skilled craft people living in and around Assynt.
With a great many not even that far from us at Stoer.
Lochinver of course has its well known Pie shop, with pies of every description available and of course the famous Stoneware pottery but look further in the streets and you may find a way to have your own lovely treat. How about a personel massage or pedicure or a visit to the local leasure centre.
Also keep a very close eye out when traveling in the quieter areas all around for small shops filled with many treasures. Some of these discretly marked with a sign indicating a shop at the house at the side of the road. Craft makers such as glass painters, Potters, Knitters, Candle makers, painters and many more making each shop unique.
With opportunities abound to find a special reminder of a very special place. (including of course the pretty pebble you picked up on one of our many beaches). We also have many amazing tea rooms selling mouthwatering homebaking and fresh food, perfect for a wet day, some hidden away in secret gardens or placed perfectly at the end of walks. Bookshops can be found, always a favourite on a less drier day to while away the time.
So its well worth it if you can distract yourself from natures astounding beauty all round to seek out all our other treasures too.
