This July, WeeBox celebrates an icon of the Scottish Highlands – the ‘Heilan Coo’!
No-one can resist the shaggy appeal of these bonnie beasts and this month we bring you a glimpse of their wit and wisdom together with stunning gifts to bring your own coos to your ‘hame’ no matter where you are in the world!
The Wit and Wisdom of Highland Cows
Celebrate the undeniable charm of our beloved Heilan Coos with this heart-warming book packed with photographs of all varieties of Highland Cow in their bonnie habitat, accompanied by words of wit and wisdom that will bring a smile to your face and you make you pause for reflection. One of our favourites is ‘don’t grab Hamish by the horns’!!
Bring your very own Highland Coos ‘hame’
A sighting of this majestic, Scottish icon in the Highlands never disappoints! So WeeBox brings you an adorable, Heilan Coo cruet set, teatowel and bronze coo with a flash of red tartan to add a special touch to your own family home – straight from their Highland playground.
Look bonnie with ‘Clara the Heilan Coo’ from Scottish Keepsakes
Wear your very own piece of hand-made Scotland. Set on heritage tweed, Clara the Heilan Coo is the creation of Carol, founder of Scottish Keepsakes. Inspired by Scotland’s rich cultural heritage, tradition and folklore, she lovingly makes each and every piece by hand for you to enjoy.
WeeBox met Scottish Keepsakes last year and adored their gifts immediately! So Scottish, original and fun. And, did you know your wee coo is eco-friendly? Wrapped in a ‘green’ clear display bag that is fully compostable and biodegradable, Scottish Keepsakes worked with WeeBox HQ to find the best option. So your wee coo won’t cost the earth.
Scottish Keepsakes’ full range can be found on their website at www.scottishkeepsakes.com and in their Etsy and Amazon shops.
Indulge in the taste of the Highlands
For four generations the Maclean’s family have held the title of ‘Scottish Master Baker’ and we are proud to bring you their award-winning chocolate chip shortbread – hand-baked, straight from their Highland Bakery to indulge!
Originally from the Western Isles, they now produce indulgent traditional shortbreads and sweet biscuits together with a range of oatcakes at their modern bakery in Forres, centrally located between the Highland, Speyside and Grampian regions of Scotland. At Maclean’s Highland Bakery they have recipes going back over a 100 years, these recipes have been handed down from generation to generation of Maclean’s family bakers. Over this time, many things have changed but there are some things the Maclean family will not change: quality of ingredients, quality of the finished product, eating quality and flavour. Most of these values are adhered to by not taking short cuts in the baking process. They are proud to say they don’t do things the cheapest way, or even the easiest way, but the RIGHT way. Paying attention to the little things really do produce results in the finished bakery products.
