Exclusive tote

In this exclusive design the message ‘Dileas gu bràth’ in Gaelic translates as ‘Faithful for ever’ and the image of a Luckenbooth brooch is a Scottish symbol of love. Dating back to the 17th century and often given as a token of betrothal, affection and friendship, the shape of a heart with a crown symbolizes love and loyalty. This tote is made from 100% cotton 5oz canvas.

Set of four beechwood coasters

The beech avenue at Achnacarry was being planted in 1745, just before the Gentle Lochiel dashed off to support the Jacobite uprising and the trees are now finally reaching the end of their life.  For each reward at this level local cabinet maker Peter Davies is making a set of 4 coasters from this wood, a unique gift capturing both history and nature.

Framed print

An exclusive framed print of "October in Knoydart" by DY Cameron, one of Scotlands leading landscape artists of the 20th Century.  This fine example of his work is in the Museum's collection (supported by Art Fund), and beautifully shows the landscape in which Bonnie Prince Charlie spent so many months hiding after the failure of Culloden.

Exclusive brooch by Saskia Gavin

Artist jeweller Saskia Gavin is generously supporting this campaign, through making a series brooches inspired by our local surroundings.  Much of Saskia’s work comes from her curiosity about her environment and for this reward, Saskia will study the rocks of Ben Nevis, their formation, weathering, shape and structure. The resulting design will be  a quartet of Ben Nevis brooches, each one unique, which she will make in silver, etching and forming it in her Edinburgh workshop. The image below is an example of Saskia's work. (Photograph Shannon Tofts)
