Beautiful pottery, well worth a visit.
Jul 2021
I visited this wonderful place while on holiday last week and fell in love with it. Absolutely beautiful and high quality work. It was so difficult choosing what to buy because everything was so gorgeous. The staff were very helpful and friendly too. You weren't hassled to buy anything either, just left free to wander round, which is what I like. I thought it was very reasonably priced too, especially for the great quality of their products. A lot of potteries charge ridiculous prices but I thought this was very reasonable. When I'm in the area again, I will be going back for another visit.

Quality goods, beautiful designs, friendly and helpful service. You can watch the people at work. We purchased a set in the 80s and this year we went back again and could buy replacements. Amazing.

A big showroom of their individual designs
Aug 2019
No pressure to buy - just wander around. I've known this place for many years and the style with its very thick pottery and still much the same pictures of sheep, mountains etc. The newest designs are more to my taste but not enough to tempt me to buy.

Thanks for taking the time to review our pottery. I'm glad you like our newer designs, some of which have, after much development, used local materials in the glazes to great effect. We are very excited about them! Although we are continually adding to our range, we also continue to produce our original designs as, I am pleased to say, they have remained popular with our customers over the years. I agree, the pottery we make is comparatively thick. This is because it is Stoneware, and not porcelain or china. It also means it will be high fired and extremely durable. I do hope you will be tempted to purchase something from us one day and will be able to appreciate the high quality for years to come! :)

Good but

This place is good but not good enough to be 3 stars. It does smell a bit but the pottery is pretty great.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for our pottery. I'm sorry you don't think it's worth a 3* rating. I would be interested to hear what you think should be done to improve. Please feel free to email us at info@highlandstoneware.com , or call us on 01571844376 . You can direct your comments to Tracey or Dorell, and we would be happy to give them thought. By the way, the smell you refer to comes from the glaze we use. We're all pretty immune to it now!

Return visit
Jul 2018 • Couples
We visited last year and bought 2 mugs which we use daily. This year when we returned to Ullapool, we had to visit again. Only this time, we bought an entire tea set to take home. This store has so many beautiful collections and the staff are quite friendly and talented. It’s amazing to watch the folks at work. We look forward to returning on our next visit to Ullapool.

Very interesting showroom with good variety of pottery
Apr 2018 • Couples
We really enjoyed looking around the showroom of this pottery and seeing the many different styles and designs of table-ware, mugs, plates, vases etc that are available. Many designs are very 'fussy' with such things as sheep and birds on them but many would find these delightful. There are also plainer designs for those who prefer. Aside from browsing in the showroom one can watch the artist painting the ware. Prices are certainly not cheap, but the quality is excellent and this is definitely a place for serious collectors of good stoneware. We look forward to returning on a future visit.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review and I can only apologise for not responding sooner. There are many jobs requiring attention in the workshop, so I am delighted you were given the opportunity to watch our skilled decorators at work. I hope you will be able to make that return visit.

Stopped here one afternoon looking for local pottery but found mostly overly cute, kitschy stuff that was a little disappointing. Even though we were definitely in the mood to buy a few pieces, we left empty-handed.

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review of our pottery. I must admit, it is not a criticism that we have had before and I even wonder if you are thinking of the correct business. But if so, I can only say that I am sorry our exceptionally durable hand painted landscapes, local flora and fauna, and more abstract pebble pieces of work did not appeal to you. I do hope you found something of interest during the rest of your visit to the area.
