Scottish Trivia Part 1 – Football, Masala and The Big Yin

The Bay City Rollers were a Seventies worldwide  sensation and the Tartan equivalent in their day of Take That or One Direction! Who doesn’t remember the fans going crazy with their long long Tartan scarves singing along to  “Bye Bye Baby” and “All of Me Loves All of You”.  Scotland has always struggled in the football World Cup and didn’t manage […]

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.

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 […]
