About Barn Owl Bothy

There will be a warm welcome to you from our lovely Esther – so why not pop by and say hello.

The usual Covid 19 precautionary measures will be in place – so we ask you to bear with us, if there is a delay getting in the wee Bothy.

Should you want to pick up any items from the shop, or take a look before you commit to buying- please message on Facebook to reserve an item.

If you’d like to book an scheduled appointment time , we can close the shop to the general public whilst you browse should you prefer. Stay safe and well and many thanks for your continued support and encouragement to our business venture.

Bring a little piece of Scotland into your home with our variety of handcrafted gifts, one-offs, bespoke and no mass-produced.

Barn Owl Bothy is run by Jan Bannister who lives on the side of a hill in Sutherland, in a modest croft house with her menagerie of wee beasties to include, dogs, ferrets, fish, hens, guinea fowl, sheep and bees. This provides plenty of inspiration which comes through in her work.

Jan carefully selects and showcases artwork and crafted items produced by local specialists.

Please pop in and browse – you will be most welcome.
