Ardalanish Weavers


Fleeces from the Hebridean sheep on this farm are woven into fine woollen products using venerable looms, which you can see at work in the old cowshed. Hot drinks and snacks are available at the shop, which sells weaving and farm produce. You can also feed the Highland cattle here. It's on a remote rural backroad 2 miles south of Bunessan.
