The Studio

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.
Post code for directions (UK): KW7 6HE

Opening Hours

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, but this is dependent on very slow local landline broadband and semi-reliable mobile broadband (no direct line of sight to a mast).
