Spotlight on Mcnees of Crieff

Category : Websites

McNee’s of Crieff Delicatessen is in the Scottish town of Crieff, Perthshire and we specialise in Scottish and Mediterranean food.

McNee’s was started by Stephen and Greta Brown. Steven had been in the food industry since leaving school and rising to store manager. In 1985 Stephen started The Chocolatier to sell a range of quality handmade chocolates to stores in the North of England and Scotland. This was one of the first importers of handmade Belgian Chocolates to Scotland.

In 1989 it was decided to open The Old Merchants in Crieff, selling chocolates, fudge and Scottish foods. This soon became a popular destination for regular visitors to stock up on Scottish foods and Chocolate and in 1998 Mcnee’s of Crieff was born.

The website, designed by Tay IT of Perth, Perthshire, Scotland has a cery clean design with a good gallery of Photos, linked posts from Facebook and a virtual tour of the shop.

Spotlight on Strathearn Talking News

Category : Websites

This is a website promoting a product primarily for the blind or partialy sighted.

Strathearn Talking News, formerly known as Strathearn Newstape, was established nearly thirty years ago by local Crieff lady Margaret Forrest. The purpose was to provide a free weekly audio cassette, for people who were blind or partially sighted, with local news from the small towns in the rural area of Strathearn, Perthshire Scotland.

At the time audio cassettes, or tapes as they were commonly called, were the in- thing and so the name Strathearn Newstape was born. The news comes from the Strathearn Herald, a weekly newspaper which comes out on a Thursday. The newspaper was originally printed at the premises of D. Philips in Comrie Street Crieff, a family run business spanning four generations.

Strathearn Talking News is a registered charity SCO 15628 and is a member of ASTN, the Association of Scottish Talking Newspapers. Run by volunteer readers and copiers, several of whom have been associated with it for many years, its purpose remains the same as it was all those years ago – to provide an audio recording of local news from the Strathearn Herald for those individuals who are blind or partially sighted.

The main challenge for the website was to ensure that the partially sighted would have tools on the page that would enable them to read or listen to the information contained on the webpage. The generally look of the page was also to be enlarged in keeping with the theme of ease of use for the partially sighted.

So, Tay IT in Perth, Perthshire, Scotland incorporated a Text size selector in order to increase the size of the text on the page and an audio recording on each page which if activated would read aloud the text on that page to the visitor.

Spotlight on Hermione’s Edge Wear

Category : Websites

Another local website for a small business in Perth Scotland. Hermione’s Edge Wear, founded by Rhoda Clark in Perth, Scotland in November 2013. Hermione’s Edge Wear creates bespoke clothing and accessories for figure skating, whether it is glitzy competition outfits, or the more fundamental every-day skating products. Rhoda had always thought about getting a website but never actually got around to it until Tay IT popped up at her door.

The design of the website and the Logo was left to Tay IT and Rhoda is more than happy with the results. The website features an online shop and she is in the process of adding her products. The shop will be going live soon. Click the image to view the website;
