Iceberg Glass was founded in 1982 by Douglas Wilson and Julie Snowdon, initially producing a small range of lamp worked glass. Now we are a small team who work with borosilicate glass heated over a propane/oxygen flame which we shape, blow or construct with a variety of colours to form our own diverse range of products.
Our wide range of products include a mix of jewellery, Christmas decorations, ornaments and Scottish themed products in various forms, including thistles, our very popular whisky pipettes and of course, as we are by Loch Ness, our highly stylised glass Nessies.
Our Studio and Shop
As well as showcasing and selling our own work, we also buy in a wide variety of hand made items and gifts both locally made, Scottish and imported (largely ethically sourced), allowing us to offer our customers more choice with frequent exciting product changes and up to date creative ideas.
Our studio is situated in the small and picturesque village of Fort Augustus, at the South end of Loch Ness. The Caledonian Canal runs through the centre of the village, where you may see pleasure cruisers, ocean going trawlers and even the occasional square-rigger waiting in the locks. The village is popular with walkers doing the famous Great Glen Way, besides many other short walks. Popular boat trips on the Loch depart from the village throughout the summer months.
