A ‘love letter to Scotland’! That is what your Outlander-inspired WeeBox brings you this July! Just like Claire, the World War II nurse of Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander books, be transported back in time to 18th century Scotland and the time of the Jacobite risings – standing stones, clans, ancient recipes and of course tartan!
Standing Stones, Clan Fraser, Dragonfly? Which charm did you get?
Exclusive jewellery designers Hamilton & Young on the Royal Mile, Edinburgh bring you their collection inspired by the romance of Jamie and Claire in 18th century Scotland. Their collection of exclusive jewellery is inspired by that romantic tale of two people in love – Jamie and Claire – while Scotland weaves its magic in each stunning piece.
Tartan and Clans
Widely regarded as being the authority on Scottish clans and tartan, this very special book is close to the hearts of both Scottish natives and the millions of people across the world who have ancestral connections with Scotland!
One of the bestselling books on the subject, this title by Ian Grimble is widely regarded as being the authority on Scottish clans and tartans. A comprehensive guide to this ever-popular aspect of Scottish culture, featuring 150 tartans in full colour. Alongside the tartans are histories of the origins of each clan and their plaids – we know it will be the perfect way to bring your Scottish heritage alive.
The world famous Selkirk Bannock!
Often seen in Mrs Fitz’s kitchen, the famous Scottish Selkirk Bannock is still handcrafted today – most famously by Alex Dalgetty & Sons in the heart of the Scottish Borders! Enjoy sliced with a spread of butter, scrumptious!
In Scotland, where the term originates from the Gaelic bannach, meaning cake, bannocks were originally round, medium-sized flat breads made from a wet dough of barleymeal and/or oatmeal. (Meal is an unsifted powder, coarser than flour, ground from any grain.) They were cooked on a girdle, or griddle, and were cut into scones, or wedges. Dalgetty‘s world famous Selkirk Bannocks are the benchmark for all others to be judged, and we believe that none come close. Handmade to a recipe well over 100 years old which involves long dough fermentation to produce flavours that you would not believe possible from a fruit bread. Using the sweetest sultanas and lashings of creamy butter, only Alex Dalgetty & Sons know how to make a true Selkirk Bannock. Best served sliced and spread with butter, or even try it toasted for a change. For something extra special why not try making a sumptuous bread and butter pudding.
Exclusive Brave Scottish Gifts ‘Standing Stones’ Postcard
Inspired by the Outlander heroine Claire’s magical encounter in the Scottish Highlands – an event that changes her life, share these Standing Stones or let yourself be transported to our bonnie land. These Calanais (or Callanish) Standing Stones, are located on the west coast of Lewis and you can’t help but wonder at the motivation of our ancestors to build such monuments over 3000 years ago.
