The Quirky and The Curious Shops In Lockdown

Share this with your friends

We have no idea what might be lurking beneath the photograph gallery on this page! But knowing the diverse and wonderful range of shops, artisans and creators that live here in Perthshire and Kinross we felt it best that we had a little miscellaneous page just in case we missed anyone!

Our row of pics are what appear in our media section under 'quirky'!

So whether you're shopping for a treat for yourself, or a gift for a friend, when you choose to shop locally in lockdown you're spreading the love with a small business as well as your lucky recipient.

Please Note: We've only just gone live with this and will be populating it over the weeks ahead. If you'd like to add your businesses to our list please click on our form here and complete your details.

Sassenach Scents

I create beautiful, sustainable, hand crafted, artisan candles, which perfectly represent the magic and essence of the Scottish Highlands.

Each candle is lovingly hand-poured using 100% vegan, ethical, cruelty-free, renewable, sustainable, non-toxic natural soy wax; fitted with Eco-friendly wicks; infused with pure, natural fragrances from varying wild flora found within the woodlands of Highland Perthshire, then carefully poured into unique recycled/recyclable glass containers.

The candle scents will capture the changing seasons. Spring, Summer, Autumn, and Winter - each season will bring an array of delightful and tantalising fragrances.
