Coralbox was founded in late 2015 by Eilidh (aged 23). After moving away to the Mainland to study photography, Eilidh missed the way of island life, the quieter pace and the beautiful beaches. After completing her photography studies, Eilidh decided to move back home to Berneray, where the idea of Coralbox then began. Using her own photography, an idea to sell coaster and mug items printed with her local photographs was started – first at craft fairs & tabletop sales around the Islands. As Coralbox began to grow from this, a 2 berth caravan was converted into a small shop for 2016 - a base for people to visit and buy items. In summer of 2016 work also began on a new purpose built wooden gift shop, in which Coralbox trades from today.
From craft stalls, to a converted caravan and now to a new build shop, Coralbox is a story of ambition and love for photography & a gift shop, alongside Eilidh being able to work and live back where she grew up as a child.
Berneray is approx. 2 by 3 miles and has a 3 mile long white sanded beach that backs onto Machair land, which has some of the best flora and fauna in Scotland. Berneray is connected to North Uist by causeway and South Harris by ferry and is located in the middle of the 140 mile chain of islands, which make up the Outer Hebrides.
