The sheltered Borgh Pottery Garden is a peaceful haven from the windblown landscape and is well loved by locals and visitors alike.

Gently lulled by birdsong and near a stream flowing through local crofts and down to the sea, one visitor described the walled space as “the most serene place I’ve ever been”. (The migrating birds who seek shelter from the wild Atlantic in the valley would no doubt agree.)

“Plants either thrive here, or give up after a few years” says Sue, who has learned that only time can tell which species will take root in the unique Lewis soil. “But the ones that remain run wild: from bluebells to wild garlic, the garden’s left as natural as possible.”

She welcomes you to enjoy spending time in the garden as part of your visit to the pottery: Click here for full details of how to get here.
