Art holidays

Small group art workshop holidays in Scotland

Our holiday packages combine art experiences for the skilled and beginners, eager to be creative and travel with other artists while on holidays in Scotland, with handpicked accommodation and eateries, visits to galleries and exhibitions, and more.

Develop your art skills in Scotland’s dramatic landscapes. Smell the sea breeze and wildflowers, explore the Highlands and islands….the winding streets of ancient villages and the buzz in our cities. Let them all inspire your art!

Every year we organise some ready-to-book art experiences on which we can take between 5 and 12 guests, depending on the package and activity. These high quality residential packages are built around a tutored art course led by one of our artists.

All our tours are created with love and much attention to detail. Click on the links below to find out more:
