Ali Mac Candles

Hand poured by Ali Mac overlooking the Summer Isles in the North West Highlands of Scotland, each of these candle has its own unique memory or story from this beautiful part of the world.

These soy wax candles are sealed in a reusable amber jar – the perfect packaging to take highland vibes with you on any journey. They are also extremely environmentally friendly; they use 100% Eco Soy Wax, Natural Cotton Wicks, Cruelty Free + Vegan Fragrance Oils / Essential oils, and Plastic Free Packaging.

Ailleagan Art

Based in rural Stirlingshire, Ailleagan Art is run by Scottish Artist Miriam Emerton. From her studio in the middle of the hills, she produces a range of handmade cards and jewellery using prints from her original landscape paintings. Miriam works predominantly in acrylics and mixed media. Not surprisingly, her work is inspired by her surroundings; Scotland’s beautiful heartland and also from visits to some of the many unique and unspoilt islands around its coasts.

The name ‘Ailleagan’  is taken from the Gaelic word meaning ‘Little jewel or treasure’. In her work Miriam aims to create wearable artwork and gifts which celebrate the beauty of Scotland’s landscapes and capture a little moment in time, for each of the places she paints.

To make life a little easier, all orders from Ailleagan Art are sent out gift wrapped, with the option to write cards, or add a gift message to be sent directly to the recipient. Ailleagan Art is also committed to sustainability and as such all their handmade cards and jewellery packaging is plastic free and made from 100% recycled materials.

Browse Miriam’s shop online and for updates on paintings and jewellery, finer her pages on Instagram and Facebook.
