The pottery is reached from the main A9 road (before the Tain turnoff coming from the South and after the Tain turnoff from the North). Watch out for the brown tourist board sign which says Aldie Watermill & Tain Pottery.
The Tain Pottery, now firmly established as one of the largest Scottish ceramic manufacturers offers this range of products created by traditional craft technique and skill. The ware has been developed by a team of artisans including two potters who between them have more than 50 years experience creating craft ceramics. The products cover quite diverse methods and techniques, from hand built and thrown through jiggered and jollied to extruded and pressed.
There is a good showroom and you can tour the pottery and watch the artists at work. The shop has many items from “one off specials” to a vast array of seconds at bargain prices – although looking at them it will often be hard to see why they are seconds! Visit the Pottery and see the ware being made and decorated. Our shop stocks a complete range of products, from “one off specials”, to a vast array of seconds at bargain prices ( many you will find difficult to fault).
