The Beaches of Harris

The Isle of Harris has some of the most stunning beaches in the world, often approached through a belt of fertile Machair.

And although Luskentyre is probably the most well known and visited, there are many more to explore and enjoy – each with their very own identity and charm.

The ever-changing tides, weather, currents and shifting sands make each visit a new experience, even for those luckily enough to live here!

And so, it is no wonder that the beaches feature in a lot of Doug’s glass designs – and everyone includes a small amount of actual sand from Harris on the shoreline, encapsulated into the glass itself. But, no need to worry – the amount is visible but small, so we will not be depleting the natural scenery of Harris. Anyone who steps foot on the beaches here will be taking more away with them on their shoes (or bare feet if hardy folk!) than in our artwork.

Over the next few months, Doug plans to extend this range so that more designs reflect the uniqueness of each of our Harris beaches – which is your favourite?
