Amazing Sheddies
We look back at a previous winner to inspire your friends & family to enter their shed.
This winning shed from 2015 is the Inshriach Distillery
A few years ago this was a dilapidated hen house and an assorted pile of old junk. Now, after some very sporadic work it has become the Inshriach Farm shop, Ladies waiting room, Saloon Bar and Distillery. T
Sheddie Walter was recently talking to STV news about how lockdown/COVID-19 & Brexit has affected his Gin business which he runs from the award-winning shed
On Inshriach Estate near Aviemore, gin distiller Walter Micklethwait, has suffered a double whammy.
He also has holiday accommodation which has been idle due to the Covid lockdown.

Your Builds
If you are starting a shed build in your garden, could be storage, office, pub, workshop & definitely if it’s a folly, then let me know as I would like to follow the progress and pass it onto the sheddies who are maybe looking to do the same.
