The studio showroom is located in the Old Post Office of Berriedale, on the coast of the Far North Scottish Highlands, about 1 hour south of John ‘O Groats or 1 and 1/2h drive north of Inverness.
The location of the showroom studio is at the very bottom of the Berriedale Braes on the inland side of the A9. Just turn off following the sign for the public phone. The studio is next to the red telephone box and there is ample car parking directly in front of the studio.

Since 29th June the Berriedale studio showroom in the Old Post Office House is open again for business implementing Scottish government guidance. We advise you to make an appointment, but walk-ins are welcome when the front gate is open (normally 10 or 11am to 5 or 6pm Mo.-Sat.).
Only two individuals of one household (or extended household) are permitted inside at any one time. This is to ensure appropriate social distancing. If you are unsure if it is safe to enter the showroom, please use the doorbell for attention down on the left side of the building and we will advise.
In Scotland it is currently mandatory to wear a personal face covering in retail spaces. Please use the hand sanitiser provided when entering.
Thank you kindly for your patience, understanding and your cooperation.

The studio is normally open for walk-ins six days a week from 10 or 11 am to 5 or 6 pm and often until much later, all through the year. However, since there are no fixed opening hours and this is Patricia’s home as well, please ring or email for an appointment. Such you could make sure she is in, if you are making a special trip. You can try the mobile number, but please be aware that mobile reception is patchy in the Highlands. The studio has mobile reception for some networks. However, this is currently dependent on local landline broadband, which is very slow.
