Balnakeil Craft Village

Balnakeil Craft Village Review

Artisans sell pottery, leather, weavings, paintings, and more from their studios at Balnakeil Craft Village. On an unnamed road running northwest from Durness, this collection of former military buildings is open April through October. Cocoa Mountain is a must for those with a sweet tooth; its "chocolate bar" serves up world-class truffles and stunningly rich hot chocolate. The hours vary, but most shops here are open daily from 10 to 5, and even later on summer evenings.
