When on holiday you probably like to support local, independent businesses but this is something that doesn't have to stop once you return home. Many craftspeople, artists, designers, food producers and photographers have websites where you can shop online for clothing, gifts, homewares and more which are a world away from the mass-produced items on the high street. For example, Scottish jewellery designers create some amazing pieces. For some people who don't have the time or resources to run a shop which customers can visit, a website can be an important part of their income. So we've introduced a new category to our website - the "online" category is for those talented people based in the Scottish Highlands and Islands creating items which are unique, handmade and which you might want to buy as gifts for loved ones or for yourself. Let's celebrate and support the talent and creativity of people inspired by the places we love!
