I can highly recommend MacDonalds Photographers on Shore Lane in Wick they are excellent and very reasonable....I picked up 4 of my photos today and it was 60 - the photographs were all pretty big too.

This is cheap considering I got 1 photo (around the same size as one of the four photos I got framed with MacDonalds) in the place next to Jim Bews in Thurso and it was 57!!!! and my mum only paid 20 with MacDonalds for the exact same photo and size!!

MacDonalds also put the string on the back and provide picture hooks thought it was great and will defo be going back!

I'd highly recommend MacDonalds in Wick as well - have had a couple of paintings framed and price was about a quarter of what I was quoted for the one next to Jim Bews and beautifully done :)

Richard Doake at Durrans if you want the picture in a mount as well as a frame

J&JM Shearer in Wick also do framing- and can be cost effective with a big picture

rare as hen's teeth catching Durran's open on a Saturday though, Richard's usually got the 'back in 5 minutes' sign on the door ... a Top Joes 5 minutes ;)

I always go to MacDonalds as well.
I have tried the place next to Jim Bews - their prices were so ridiculous, I could only afford to have one of my paintings framed!
I would never go back - stick with MacDonalds! :)
