Highland Hiddle at the Royal Highland Show

Highland Hiddle is going "offline" for the first time in our short history and will be showcasing many of our makers with a stand at this year's Royal Highland Show in Edinburgh on 23rd - 26th June. In its 200th year, the show celebrates all aspects of farming and rural life and this year the Presidential Initiative Marquee will tell the story of the Highlands and Islands region, with Highland Hiddle emphasising the theme in the Home and Gift Hall by featuring the work of a number of artists and crafters.

With over 80 makers represented on our online website, sadly it's impossible for us to show products from everyone, but we are bringing as many as space allows. All of whom give an insight into the fantastic variety we offer. Here is an overview into what you will find on our stand.
