The Skye and Lochalsh Arts and Crafts Association has represented and supported artists and craftspeople from the creative hub of the west coast for over twenty-five years. From small beginnings it grew to a membership of over eighty before the banking crisis caused economic rethink, and funding for the arts in this area was no more.


Now completely self-sufficient, and seeking no help from any self-interested party, the organisation promotes Skye arts and crafts through a website, video channel, and an acclaimed booklet based on the geographic location of its members. Throughout a 12 year period, the Art-Skye trails have made studios, galleries and workshops part of the visitor experience, along routes showcasing the spectacular scenery of this very special Island.
