We moved to the Isle of Skye in 2012, escaping the rat race in London, where Neil had lived for over 20 years, and where Claire was born and raised. We opened our holiday let at the end of the year, and our gallery/cafe in autumn 2013.
Neil started out as a zoologist, which is something you never lose interest in, no matter what you do, and is enjoying getting back in touch with the natural environment and capturing it in still images after working for 20 years as an editor, in print and online. Claire started out as a musician, but worked for many years in management in the NHS.
We’re both keen cooks, so don’t expect everything in the cafe to be routine, everyday fare!
