A Great Day Out

As well as the craft stalls, most venues also offer food & refreshments such as home baked cakes and scones.
Supporting Small Local Businesses
Whilst Skye & Lochalsh boasts a wide range of galleries and craft workshops that are open to the public, not all makers and artists have their own sales premises. Many rely on the craft fairs and events as their main outlets for trade.
These events are hugely important to the local economy. Please support them whenever you can - thank you.
