Creative influences Throughout my life I have been influenced by people both in the past and present; however my late father never knew how his creative style of working and telling of stories had opened my mind to the ancient Irish Celts & Gaelic Scots. My brother has also played an important part by recognizing that in spite of my previous health problems I had the abilities & simply needed encouragement to develop designs that reflected today’s every changing taste in interior design. Two friends whose influence has helped me over many long years to nurture and develop my own style is the current bespoke artist Robert Ryan and his late departed brother (bespoke artist) Martin Ryan. The pictures that I create in copper and pewter today have choice of flowers similar to that used by the late Margaret (McDonald) Mackintosh wife of C.R. Mackintosh. (My favourite flower is the Scottish Thistle the heart of Scotland)

I have been a professional artist for many years, studying in Hampshire and in Glasgow, originally working as a textile designer, before demand grew and I made the decision to concentrate my work solely on painting. Exhibiting extensively across the UK, including several sold-out exhibitions, I have been lucky enough to have many collectors including celebrities, politicians, and companies, with customers in the USA, Canada, Ireland, across Europe, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. Design and art work has been commissioned and purchased by – among others – The National Trust for Scotland, Glasgow Galleries and Museums, Scottish Tourist Board, the Edinburgh Festival Company, for castles, hotels, company offices, and by many private collectors around the world. Selected for the Scottish Artists Gallery at the John Lewis store in Glasgow. Gallery exhibitions include Glasgow, Helensburgh, Ayrshire, Stirling, Perthshire, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Bristol. My work has been featured in a number of magazines and newspapers, and has been described as ‘one of the modern Scottish Colourists’.

Odyssey Candles & Accessories is a family run business committed to bringing candles and other luxury scented products to you at very affordable prices. The Odyssey Candles story begins a few years ago when our founders, Bob and Annette Gibson, noticed that friends and colleagues were regularly buying and giving as gifts overpriced and over rated American candles and other scented products. As a bit of a candle expert Annette knew that these candles were overpriced, cheaply manufactured, mass market products. Annette also knew that a wide range of far superior products existed right here in the United Kingdom, having bought many of them herself. Quality candles and diffusers with wonderful scents and aromas that were far superior to the mass market products mentioned. With this knowledge and frustration came inspiration and Odyssey Candles was born.
Good products take time and Gigha Halibut is a result of 20 years of dedicated research and development. Work started on Halibut at the marine hatchery at Otter Ferry on Loch Fyne in 1991with the successful capture and transportation of live wild halibut from the North of Scotland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands. The challenge then was to work out the life cycle of the halibut and the optimum conditions for each stage. What sets halibut apart from other marine species is the long and protracted larval rearing stage. It took much longer than anticipated to master the art of growing halibut. The Isle of Gigha surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean was identified as a very suitable site for the ongrowing stage and in 2006 Gigha Halibut was established. Harvesting began in 2007 and the company has been providing premium Atlantic halibut to the market week in week out since that time. The consistency of quality and the sustainable credentials of Gigha halibut delivered by dedicated people have been the key to success.

Bute Brew Co was established in 2014 after a Christmas Day beach barbecue conversation about getting some good beer out and about on Bute. We are a 6bbl brewery, that means in our brew house we can make 1000l of beer at a time. Since starting we have spent as much time expanding our fermentation capacity and our conditioning vessels as we have brewing, all to just keep up with the demand. Now we have squeezed all we can into our wee brewery so short of moving, which we have tried, we can expand no further. So we can just focus on what we love best; making good beer and drinking it. We at Bute Brew Co believe good beer deserves good food, good music and good vibes. So we try to create it by having our brewery open as a venue. We have teamed up with Greenfry and together we now have amazing food served from the brewer (try the pear and blue cheese pizza.) It’s the best. We also have regular event and music nights so check out our what’s on page to find out more. Our beer is also available at all the best beer shops and delis throughout […]
The Knox anchor has the highest holding power of any commercial anchor for leisure boats. It was invented in Scotland by Professor Knox, and is made in Scotland, (perhaps the only remaining anchor made here?). New generation anchors are far superior in performance to older models, copies of which are still available. Some consider an anchor an item unlikely to be used, but like other safety equipment, when you really need it, it is some assurance that yours will work. No-one would rely on a 1930’s design of lifejacket today, but we cling on to 1930’s designs of anchors, ignoring the huge difference in materials and design. Come and see a Scottish made Knox anchor at the show. Check our website for details of what customers have said about the Knox Anchor.
