Great gift selection (most with sarcasm involved). George is a great photographer with his works around the shop. He also has a cute little parrot!

This is simply the best shop on Skye. George is so helpful and entertaining and an extremely talented photographer. Lots of lovely souvenirs and I even managed to start my Christmas shopping. The visit really cheered up a rainy day on Skye.
