BUSINESSES ON ARRAN – EYESPACE DIGITAL

NAME(S):

Tom and Shiona McGarrigle

BUSINESS:

Eyespace Digital and The Arran Gift Box Company, both in Lamlash

ABOUT:

We moved over to Arran full time just over 4 years ago now. We moved to the island primarily because we wanted to bring our children up here, Shiona had grown up here and left when she was 18 so knew it was a wonderful place to bring the kids up.  It is also an inspiring place to work from and its enabled us to start up or 2nd business - The Arran Gift Box Company, which we had the idea to do for years.

WHAT WAS YOUR BACKGROUND BEFORE MOVING TO ARRAN?

Just before taking the decision to move to Arran full time we had lived in Glasgow for over 10 years. Tom was a self -employed web developer and Shiona worked in Digital Marketing in Glasgow and Edinburgh.

WHAT ARE THE BEST THINGS ABOUT LIVING AND WORKING ON ARRAN?

Arran is a great place to work from, due to your surroundings you have a much more relaxed environment to work from. It has a real feeling of a supporting community which can be lacking when you live in the city. The island has many people running their own small businesses, and with fibre across most of the island now our type of work can be carried with no problems. There are many families on the island with young children, working and running their own businesses and it is great to have that support and friendship.
