About Us

Image of old smiddy

We are based in the beautiful rural market town of Strathaven in South Lanarkshire. The property dating back to the 1790s, originally formed part of Townhead Farm, and latterly became a blacksmiths shop, known in Scotland as a ‘smiddy’ serving the local community until the 1970s.

Having lain virtually derelict for 30 years and facing demolition, we purchased the property in 2000, and carried out extensive renovations creating a gift shop and gallery. Realising the potential of our idyllic waterside setting, we added our coffee shop and outside seating area in 2006, which have proven to be an extremely popular destination for locals and visitors alike.
