Cutest little place, purchased a fabulous buoy (Tabby's Day Out) honesty box and can also pay by bank transfer which was ideal. Lovely item, and lovingly painted. Glad we made the journey here. 🥰

Cute wee shed selling hand-painted old fishing buoys, which just catches your eye at the side of the road. Works as an honesty shop with cash or mobile payments and Donna was really helpful over the phone when we got stuck. Thanks for the cute (and eco-friendly) souvenirs !

Donna did me the most gorgeous buoy with bunnies on. She has a serious talent and I cant believe just how well she captured the details. Thankyou Donna. 😀

Our Story

Donna Lockerbie is a professional artist from the Sleat Peninsula on the Isle of Skye, in Scotland. 

Donna and her sons have teamed up to clean the beaches of this beautiful island by collecting washed up plastic fishing floats and buoys and give them a second life through superb artwork.

Sadly, lost and abandoned fishing gear, which is deadly to marine life, makes up the majority of large items of plastic pollution in the oceans and ends up on our beaches.

At Scouting For Buoys we are aiming to clear the beaches of the Isle of Skye of  flotsam and 
jetsam, and especially plastic by collecting items that can be upcycled or recycled. 

Donna uses high quality acrylics and glosses to transform lost fishing floats and buoys, driftwood and beach pebbles into exquisite pieces of art. The beautiful rope work is done by her husband, a retired fisherman. 

By buying from us, you are getting a genuine and beautiful artwork. You are also helping preserving the beauty of this wonderful Scottish island and its wildlife, and helping a local artist.
