Fab little gallery full of unique art from needle felting pictures and keyring to prints and originals in ink, paint and pencil. Had a lovely chat with the artist/owner and admired the unusual log burner. Not obvious to find but even more special for it!

Stopped in during our stroll through Glencoe Village, the owner was delightful and so friendly. Her artwork is amazing and varied, and this is worth a turn off the main road for a visit.
