Tippecanoe is Portree's gift shop extraordinaire. It is just packed with quality, interesting and fun stuff.

You will find great novelties, jewellery, pictures, cards, books and lots more. But perhaps the best bit is that alongside lots of innovative, design-led gifts from Scotland and beyond, you'll find that much of the stock is carefully chosen from local Skye suppliers. There are great candles from Skyelight, bead jewellery from Skye's Little Gems, wee ceramic birds on driftwood from Armadale plus a wide selection of art and photograhy from many local artists - including John Bathgate, Diana Mackie, Peter McDermott, Ian Williams, Gordon Willoughby and Jim Woodman. They also stock a range of fair trade and eco-friendly gifts.

All of this comes with fair prices - and service with a big smile too!

Tippecanoe is easy to find on the south side of Wentworth Street in Portree, just opposite the Post Office.
