|Balnakeil Craft Village is at first glance, an unattractive place to visit, being an old RAF camp with military style buildings, but it is well worth a visit. Here craftspeople can be seen producing their wares and the hand made goods are available to purchase. The range of goods is quite large and an hour or so spent there will be well spent.|
