Discover Craft in Scotland

Scotland is leading a contemporary craft revolution! On the islands, in the cities and in rural communities our skilled craft makers create distinctive jewellery, textiles, ceramics, glass and basketry to treasure inspired by our magnificent landscape and heritage.

Our popular traditional crafts such as tartan, Harris Tweed and luxury cashmere woollens are world famous. Complementing those heritage skills we also have contemporary designers creating beautiful handmade products that make unique souvenirs and furnishings. Many of our talented makers welcome visitors and can add a special personal element to tours and itineraries.
