Loch Ness Clayworks

High above Loch Ness, on the edge of the Caledonian tundra, The Clayworks nestles under an ancient fortress in wild birch and oak woodland. Here Rebekah Allan, the Highland potter, continues a long tradition of artisan pottery.

Much of the production, including full sets of plates and bowls, and tea sets, is made to order. A particular speciality is the Wedding Plate or Loving Cup with lettering to the customer’s order. The domestic ware and the ornamental pieces, with their distinctive maker’s stamp, are attractive to collectors world-wide.

Bunloit

To get to the pottery take the road leading to Bunloit, it is marked as a no-through road (because the pottery is at the very end). It is about four miles to the pottery but what a lovely four miles it is! Parts of the road are very steep and winding with beautiful views. Be aware that you are likely to meet horses and riders on this road and take lots of care. There are plenty of passing places so be sure to pull in and let locals pass as they know the road much better.

Keep following the road – go on past the car-park, until you cross a bridge. Lots of people stop at the car-park and cannot find the pottery – they have just not gone far enough!
