Born and bred in Ullapool, Riona has a great love of her home town. After high school, she studied at Sabhal Mor Ostaig on Skye and is a proud Gaelic speaker. Since then, she has also taken painting courses with local tutors Eleanor White and Glen Davis where she was able to develop her natural artistic talent.
Riona joined Highland Stoneware as cover for maternity leave in 2013, and at the time of writing this, that child is now in primary school. She has proved to be an extremely valuable member of the Ullapool team, contributing to decorating, glazing and kiln firing, and is always ready with a friendly welcome for our customers.
In her spare time Riona enjoys traveling, walking dogs, and considers herself to be a vital member of the local women’s darts team.
