    I made a shed for general storage but have now turned it into a bit of workshop and want to somehow fill in the gap between the top of the shed walls and the roof (see pic) to stop the drafts when its windy.
    Shall I just fill the gaps with some loft insulation or is there anything else I could use?

    Fixing a hole where the wind gets in and stops your mind from wandering ....

    On topic - what the others said. I guess the blue paint shows that there is a hole big enough for your paint brush from the outside? In which case foam might be tricky because it might bulge/fall down that gap. Hence I'd go for a timber infill. Measure the gap, roofing battens will probably suffice. Then use a squirt of foam to seal the gap at the top and ends.
