Inver Cottage really is one of the West Coast of Scotland’s best places to visit. A restaurant, a visitor attraction, a cosy (and well-stocked) bar, a view you could bottle, space for events both public and private, and home this weekend to the annual Christmas shopping event, which we’re proud to be a part of.
An independent, family-run business, Inver Cottage is one of the UK’s top restaurants for ethically-sourced fish, including local hand-caught scallops and langoustines. You can have a delicious lunch then take a walk to the ruins of Old Castle Lachlan, to build your appetite back up for scones and tea. Although you should definitely bring your wellies, we’ve seen hardier locals swimming in the bay just outside the picture window at the front of the restaurant at this time of year!
All the information can be found on the Inver Cottage website, and facebook page. We’ll see you there with a small selection of our t-shirts, which are being couriered direct from the printer as I type. We can’t wait!
We’re looking forward to our first ever event at The Children’s Wood this weekend. One of our very favourite places in Glasgow, and something of a hidden gem, this square plot of land in the North Kelvin area of Glasgow is like nowhere else in the city. The best way we can describe it is as something like a wild park – although it’s carefully looked after by a team of dedicated volunteers. There’s woodland, a meadow, allotments, lots of cool shady trees, all kinds of urban wildlife and plenty of room to simply run, sit or be at peace in nature.
Invited by our friends in the Glasgow Etsy Team, we will be taking a stall in the handmade and vintage section of the event – although just try and keep us away from the cakes – where you can see samples from our first collection of t-shirts in person. For the little ones, we have a competition to design a t-shirt, you can make your own badges, and we’ll have a few of our own badges, cakes and colouring sheets available to buy. We’ll be taking pre-orders for delivery of t-shirts and colouring books at the start of December, and you can sign up to our newsletter (if you haven’t already!) so you can be on top of all the latest Mimi & Will news.
But it’s not all about us – there’ll be storytelling with a foodie theme, a mud kitchen, biscuit decorating, local artisan and independent food producers and did we mention the cake? Find out more at the Children’s Wood event page on Facebook – or turn up and be very pleasantly surprised.
