Carron Pottery, Strathcarron

#2 of 7 in Things to do in Strathcarron
The Pottery & Craft Shop is in the old school & schoolhouse at Cam-allt, Strathcarron.

This was originally built around 1860.

This building was then converted in 1976/7 by Barry & Anne Jones, where Barry was the full time potter and Anne ran the shop.

In 1978 Rob & Jan Teago moved from Applecross & joined forces with Barry and Anne to help build, and then run the Carron Restaurant next door. The Restaurant opened in 1979. Rob & Jan ran the restaurant for the next 14 years and built up a loyal customer base and a very good reputation for good food and a friendly atmosphere.

In 1982 Rob began learning to pot during the winter months, and when Barry & Anne retired in 1992, Rob & Jan were able to buy the business and Rob became a fulltime potter. He has developed the pottery in many ways over the years, introducing new colours, patterns and glazes including using the locally occurring marine clay from the river Carron. He now has a very healthy order book and the pots are sent all over the world.

In 1993 the Gallery was added to sell and promote local & Scottish professional artists.
