Scotties – the Highland terriers

Some of my recent designs feature a charming wee Scottie dog. Originally bred in the Highlands of Scotland, Scotties have always been one of my favourite dog breeds. They have strong character and a great (and rather forceful) personality. With a long history of being excellent watchdogs, they’re loyal and also occasionally quite stubborn! Scottie […]

Scottish Trivia Part 2 – Banking, Kilts and the Real McCoy

The Bank of Scotland was founded by John Holland, an Englishman. Whereas the Bank of England and the Bank of France were founded by Willian Patterson and John Law respectively – both Scottish! The adhesive postage stamp was invented by James Chalmers from Dundee but rather unbelievably it was in Russia that our national bard […]

Scottish Nursery Rhymes and Street Songs

Any child brought up in Scotland will know, off by heart, some of our very favourite nursery rhymes. They were sung to us by our mums and grannies and are an lovely memory of childhood days.   They vary throughout Scotland according to tradition and superstition but there are a few that every child within a 100 mile radius of Glasgow will be […]

Beautiful Lola Highland Cow serving tray by Gillian Kyle

Serving up some new ideas…

Serving trays…think they’re only for tea and biscuits? Think again! Getting creative with serving trays allows you to be organised and can help you to give purpose to a collection of different items or even just make the most of an empty wall space. I decided to create a new collection of tea trays as […]

The Murray Brothers – Scottish National Treasures!

They became the first ever set of brothers to simultaneously occupy the world number one spot in 2016, quite an achievement for the Murray family (and for Scotland)!

Scotland the brave…

There’s nothing quite like hearing live bagpipes. Whether you’re at a wedding, celebration or even just passing by a piper in the streets, it’s always quite a magical experience. I find it almost impossible to visit our capital city and not come across a piper, especially if you’re walking along the Royal Mile. With the […]

Our Scottish Granny’s Biscuit Tins

Anyone with a Scottish Granny will have fond memories of their biscuit tins. In fact, in our family we have biscuit tins that once belonged to my husband’s great granny still in use today. My own Mum (Gillian’s granny) had a great selection of biscuit tins in a variety of shapes and sizes. The coronation of Queen Elizabeth in 1953 produced a plethora of […]
