Due to a rise in demand from both customers and local crafters, event organiser Exclusively Highlands is bringing over 50 separate and unique exhibitors to the Coo Cathedral at Aboyne Castle in Aberdeenshire this September.
Coo Cathedral is a beautiful location and its ground floor setting has the advantage of being wheelchair friendly for any customers who might find the stairs a challenge.
If you are seeking your special someone that distinctively Scottish gift for any occasion, a treat for yourself, your home or table, or would like to do a little early Christmas shopping, its an event not to be missed. Plus, throughout the weekend, Exclusively Highlands hope to raise substantial funds for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The 50 exhibitors represent the very best of Highland arts, crafts and food production. All products are completely unique. You can shop for jewellery, with silver and coppersmithing, mixed media, textile, glass, wire, semi-precious gemstone and intricate beading. Photography, including some of the Highlands top wildlife and large format landscape photographers. Glass, such as collectibles, hangings, and iron and glass furnishings. Pottery in a range of styles to suit all tastes. Textiles, including handbags, scarves, hats and knitwear. Original paintings, sculptures, horncraft, screen printing, pens, collectors bears and childrens books by a highland author and much more.
No Festival would be complete without food and there is food aplenty. Scrumptious baking, delicious patisseries, jams, jellies and preserves, chocolates, fudge and marshmallows. Savoury delights to include charcuterie, cheeses and a range of hand made breads oatcakes and nibbles. Something to get every mouth watering.
And not forgetting Exclusively Highlands’ first ever Pop up Pantry featuring Bad Girl Bakery and many other food exhibitors, a chance for customers to relax and enjoy a superb lunch or afternoon tea during the event, while reviewing their purchases.
There is a wealth of creative talent across the North of Scotland, and this event at Coo Cathedral will give visitors a chance to sample a broad selection all under one roof and support Macmillan and people affected by cancer.
Exclusively Highlands founder, Isabel Stewart said ‘This will be our first event at the Coo Cathedral and demand from artisans to take part has been amazing. Visitors can be assured of a friendly welcome and great shopping experience.’
