Carron Pottery is situated on the south shore of Loch Carron, one mile
south from the Strathcarron Railway Station.  The building began as a School
and Schoolhouse built around 1860 and converted in 1976/77 by the previous
potter and his wife Barry & Anne Jones.  Rob & Jan Teago took over the
business in 1992. There is a purpose-built extension on the back that houses
the pottery workshop.  Peter, their son, has now joined Rob, the present
potter, as his apprentice, and they can be seen working most days either
throwing, glazing or filling the kilns ready for firing.  Our pottery is
hand-thrown stoneware, Rob and  Peter make domestic ware and many specially
commissioned pieces.  The pottery is used every day in Carron Restaurant
next door.

The Craft shop is in the Old Schoolroom where you will find not only our
pottery, but also the very best of Scottish crafts.  The range, (some
local), includes;  woodcraft, jewellery, paper craft from several different
Scottish makers. Amongst these are silverware, glass, other ceramics,
excellent Scottish textiles and much more besides; everything from a
postcard to a wedding present.

The Gallery upstairs is in a lovely airy room with lots of natural light and
was started in 1993. We display paintings and prints in a wide mix of styles
and mediums from local and Scottish professional artists.  Amongst these are
Ken Ferguson, Sophie Macpherson, Helen Robertson, Miriam Smith; and print
makers Michael Stuart Green and Kitty Watt.
There are prints, etchings, sculptures, wooden bowls, textiles, ironwork
furniture, candle sticks, fire-irons and basketry.

A simply beautiful part of the world. I stayed near Gairloch with my family recently, and we'll certainly be back.
