About Us

We are Loch Ness Leather, and we have been making and selling leather goods since 1975.
Heather Hanshaw
Daughter of Steve and Joan, both leather workers, I have been learning leather craft from my parents since I was very young. Growing up in the village of Laggan in the Highlands of Scotland, I would often earn a wee bit of pocket money helping in the workshop! I am now based in Carrbridge, near Aviemore, in the Cairngorm National Park, and craft all my leather work in my well kitted garden workshop.
Steve Hanshaw
Steve learned his craft around 45 years ago, and has made and sold leather goods from his shop in Invermoriston on the shores of Loch Ness for many of those years. Originally from Liverpool, and being one of the only Clog Makers in the country, people always prick up their ears when they hear he hasn't lost his accent!

Clog and Craft Shop under new Management

There has been a wee bit of a change at the Clog and Craft Shop in Invermoriston! Steve has retired from running the shop, and has passed the management on to the very capable hands of mother and son team Clare and Peter. You will still find all your favourite Loch Ness Leather goods there, still supplied and made by us. And many other eclectic items from far and wide!
