A Creel is a lobster pot. The Creel Yard was once an area where the local fishermen stored their Creels in Winter. The site became redundant and I purchased it  in 2018. The pods are my own design and we have gradually built  the site to what it is today.

Grimsay is a working island and we live here all year round. The weather can be extreme and therefore everything we build is built to last and cope with the winter!!!
