Arts, Crafts & Shopping
There's a vibrant mix of traditional and contemporary arts and crafts on Gigha. Many islanders produce hand crafted goods that can be purchased at the Shop, the Craft Units, or sometimes you may just be lucky enough to stumble upon some local crafts for sale on your travels around the island.
Gigha’s Natural Skincare
Situated at the Craft Units, Gigha's Natural Skincare promotes an affordable Skincare Range made with active plant materials free from harmful parabens, mineral oils, and animal products.
Owner of GNS, Morven, has been blending oils and making cream for over ten years. She had severe Eczema in her teens and found many off the shelf products either unsuitable or prohibitively expensive. Oils have been carefully chosen over the years and selected for their individual properties in each product.
Morven also offers holistic treatments such as Reiki, ear candling and massages.
