Venachar Lochside Gift Shop

We dedicate our wee gift shop area to local craftspeople and artists. We are very proud to showcase our community’s innovators and designers.


From Amy Britton, a Stirling-based designer working with Bute tweed to David from Sticks and Stones, a traditional carpenter who creates bespoke work from storm damaged trees in the central belt (only dovetails and dowels!), we have welcomed a wide range of designers, artists, knitters, felters, painters, potters, woodworkers and innovators at Venachar this summer.


Hand-crafted soft furnishings including curtains and blinds, throws and cushions as well as fine upholstered furniture using their signature Harris Tweeds and Scottish wools.
