Historical Scottish Harps and Clarsachs. Situated in the North of Scotland,
our timber is from Highland farms and estates. Exceptional care, sound
craftsmanship and value are the hallmarks of these beautiful harps. All work

sound boxes hollowed-out from single blocks of timbers, and strung with brass.
We also build 15th and 16th century style Bray harps, and 8th through 10th
century style Pictish harps.
