Crafts & Things - News and Events


For over thirty years we have promoted life traditional music at the Coffee Shop, Crafts & Things, but with the business on the market and many artists booking concerts over a year in advance it became necessary to find a new home for these events.

Fortunately, the Duror and Kentallan Community Centre, just 7 miles south of Ballachulish fits the bill perfectly, and since 2022 we have been putting concerts on in this delightful venue.

We will continue to do this in 2024. As from the start, apart from a small cut to cover the hall 's running costs the musicians get all the proceeeds of ticket sales.

Almost all tickets are sold via my emailing list, and if you wish to be on this please email me, David, at david@glencoe.plus.com


Deatils of the Autumn 2024 series of concerts will be posted here soon, but make sure you are on the emailing list to be the first to hear when tickets go on sale.


The owner of the business David Cooper has written a book, called "A Gap Life"

Capturing the spirit of the 60s, this is the story of one man’s physical and spiritual journey through those extraordinary years.

Starting in Aberdeen, finishing in Glencoe, David Cooper travels across Europe, North America, and Asia. From a commune in California to the rooftops of Istanbul, traversing the deserts of Iran and Afghanistan, crossing the Karakoram on foot, staying in Tibetan monasteries and remote Sumatran tribal villages, travelling alone, he encounters many iconic 60’s figures.

From R.D. Laing, John Lennon, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and Allen Ginsberg, the acknowledged founder of the Beat Generation, David’s travels and meetings give us a unique insight into a fascinating era, one that changed the world.

Its available at the shop.

He has also written a local guide book for Mountain (e) bike routes in the area. Its has proved very popular and is in its third reprint. Copies are avalable in the shop and also at the Highland Bookshop in Fort William.
