- Do you want a simple way to edit your website content?
- Do you want to work with friendly, experienced, flexible and affordable website professionals?
- Does your existing website do all that you need it to do?
- Is your website mobile-friendly?
We will use our combined 40 years' IT experience to help you plan what you want your website to deliver, and what you want to do with it. We will then develop your site to fit your requirements exactly, but with an eye to keeping it flexible enough to accommodate future needs.
We will then host the site, taking care of domain name administration and email management if required. You will not be tied to us for future development or management - although we will do our best to make sure you are completely happy with our service and choose to remain as our valued clients.

A small selection of some of our recent projects. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you'd like to discuss your own web project.
The Isle of Gigha Heritage Trust, as part of their National Lottery funded "Gateway to Gigha" project, needed to commission a brand new visitors' site to market the island and attract more tourists. It was decided to separate out their more community focussed content into the exisiting Isle of Gigha site (also produced by Redstone Websites). Design and development of the new site was put out to tender and we were delighted to win the project, thus continuing our long working relationship with the island.
A refresh of the Isle of Gigha community website which Redstone Websites originally built a number of years ago.
A brand new "blank sheet" design and implemenetion for Hideway Holiday Lettings, a family run business with holiday lets on the Island of Gigha and on Cyprus. Further expansion of their holiday let portfolio is in the pipeline.
A ground up responsive rebuild of the original, outdated website for Richard Murphy Architects, to refect their latest corporate identity and provide an attrative platform for their extensive catalogue of projects; past, present and future.
After a couple of failed attempts to get a website up and running with other providers we were recommended to Emily Pelham Burn by another of our clients. Emily needed some branding, logos and a brand new website developed to promote her Edinburgh based Fine Art and Antique consultancy business.
Sarah had had a disagreement with her previous web host and needed and new website and branding in any case. We built a visually attractive site to showcase her great photographs and advertise her business.
An amalgamation of a legacy site originally developed by Redstone and an alternative site from a sister business which were to merge. The client required that the new site adopt branding from the sister site.

Brand new front end look and feel to existing site in order to modernise and freshen up the site. Fully responsive design featuring gift voucher sales through Paypal, live webcams, and a live feed from the airfield weather station.
Love it, love it! It’s amazing how easy it (the content management system) is compared to previous experiences – didn’t even need to read your instructions! Love it, love it!

Redstone Websites have done a fantastic job of building the new Visit Gigha website. We originally chose Redstone Websites as their bid for our project was thorough, offered solutions, and presented ideas that made the vision for the website come to life. They understood the brief and the very first design they presented was exactly what we were looking for. The website management is user friendly, meaning we can update content in-house at ease. Kim and Graeme have always been very accommodating to any queries and have made the process so straight-forward for us.
I didn't mention having worked with you before as we weren’t involved with the build of the other website, and I wouldn’t say you were offered the bid because of that either, your tender really did stand out as you had done the mock website and presented ideas.

I am so impressed by my new website created by Kim. She listened to what I wanted to achieve and custom made a website that is original and fits my business perfectly. Kim was so calm and spent lots of time helping me understand. I am delighted and proud of the result. I am getting great feedback and it's really helped my business. I strongly recommend this company. Thanks Kim so much! xxx

We are extremely happy with the end product. We have worked together with Kim and Graeme of Redstone on our re-designed website. They have been fantastically responsive to our evolving requirements and we are extremely happy with the end product. It is graphically a huge improvement and we believe easy to use both by browsers and easy for us to add and vary in the future.

Graeme and Kim could not have been more friendly and helpful. Having had a couple of false starts in setting up a website myself it was a huge relief to have such professional support. Their knowledge and patient explanations of what was and wasn’t possible were invaluable. They were also brilliant at keeping their foot on the pedal so that everything came together in a relatively short length of time. They delivered exactly what they said they would deliver and I have had excellent feedback regarding my site. I am very pleased with the result and can thoroughly recommend them.

I love it. The new site is getting lots of positive comments from my customers and followers. New garden enquiry this evening. They said they were “inspired” by my website! Yay!

What a beautiful website. I was instantly and absolutely captivated by Gigha when I visited in 2015, and cannot wait until I return. I think of Gigha every single day. Your website captures this magic and I thank you for putting together such a great site!

That is now perfection. Being in a visual industry I am particularly influenced by visuals - and I think it is now exactly how I imagined.
