Welcome to the First Blog
With spring just around the corner, we have been musing of late about the breath taking beauty that surrounds us here in the Highlands of Scotland. It’s a place rich in heritage and culture. From stunning landscapes to an abundance of fresh produce such as world class beef and fish, to our famous malt whisky, thriving arts and crafts scene and fabled tourist attractions including the Loch Ness Monster!
This rich tapestry of offerings is what prompted me to build my business here at Scotsburn and now to be able to offer to you all the bounty of the Highlands gives me great delight.
I have lived on The Croft all my life, surrounded by my immediate family and now my extended family as we have grown and married and had children of our own. My parents are still in the middle of all their offspring and we are a stones throw away from nieces and nephews and brothers and sisters.
Croft life is one of self-sufficiency and self-production. I started the business making bags for myself and my family and rapidly started to receive orders from friends of friends and then complete strangers via the network of ‘word of mouth’.
I am still making bags but the brand has grown to include a range of fashion accessories, ceramics and home furnishings all handmade and reflecting the rich heritage of the Highland croft but with a tilt to the modern way of living. It truly is” the home of the croft collection”
2015 is an exciting year for us as we reach out to wider markets by attending various trade shows and events throughout the year and with the launch of our new website www.scotsburn-croft.co.uk
We would like to thank all our loyal customers and friends for their continued support and are excited about the prospect of meeting and hearing from a whole new generation of customers in the months and years to come.
