Scented candle with fox design by Gillian Kyle

Remember, remember the fifth of November

Remember, remember the fifth of November Gunpowder, treason and plot… Our annual tradition of sizzling sparklers and impressive displays on cold Bonfire nights stems way, way back to 1605. We celebrate Guy Fawkes’ arrest by creating wild bonfires and hosting winter parties, but why? Get cosy this Guy Fawke’s with a nice cup of tea! […]

Scotland’s national drink…

Whisky has been distilled in Scotland since as early as 1494, and it’s well known across the world as Scotland’s national drink. The drink evolved from a Scottish drink called ‘uisge beatha’, which actually means ‘water of life’. I’m sure plenty of Scots still feel this way about whisky today!     A wee dram… […]

Scottish Nursery Rhymes and Street Songs

Any child brought up in Scotland will know, off by heart, some of our very favourite nursery rhymes.

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 […]

Scottish china mug and coasters in Westie design by Gillian Kyle

Westies and their fluffy white coat…

This is Archie – he’s a wee scamp. With his tartan bow tie and big brown eyes he looks like butter wouldn’t melt – but as all Westie owners will tell you – he’s got a streak of mischief in him a mile wide! The Scottish West Highland Terrier features on a number of my […]

Green, purple and sharp…why are Thistles our national emblem?

Growing abundantly throughout Scotland, the beautiful but viciously sharp and prickly purple thistle has proudly carried the title of Scotland’s national emblem for hundreds of years. But why was it chosen in the first place? ‘Jaggy Thistles’ Stretched Canvas Print in Silver Well, it all dates back to the Battle of Largs in 1263… For […]
