The V&A and Penguins Come to Dundee

Bonnie Dundee 2018 - now we really do have something to sing about For me, Dundee will be forever associated with Oor Wullie and The Beano, but these days its no longer just the city of "jute, jam and journalism". In fact, in 2014, the wee city on the Tay was recognised by the United Nations (no [...]

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 […]

Detail of Highland Cow Canvas print by Gillian Kyle

Highland coos

Shaggy Highland Cows are an instantly recognisable emblem of Scotland, and, with their strong horns, long eyelashes and oh-so long and hairy coats, these gentle giants are really something special. When you think of the Scottish countryside, lush green grass, rocky crags and clear cold lochs come to mind – add a noble Highland coo […]

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 […]

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 […]
