Visited this shop near Staffin and stocked up with some beautiful hand-made candles. There is a wide range of styles, colours and scents all of which are well priced.
In addition to the candles there is also a range of truly unique jewellery made by Nicky who with her husband, Paul, now run this interesting artisan shop. Well worth a visit.

Not to be confused with another candle company of a similar name. We have been visiting for years and it is always a pleasure to meet Nick, the owner.

You could be forgiven for accidently driving past this place but it's worth keeping you keys open for it when going through Staffin. The owner, Nick, is one of the friendliest guys we met during our week's holiday (although everyone on the island are very welcoming). We bought several candles at a very reasonable price and booked to go back later in the week for a very enjoyable and informative lesson on how to make them. I would definitely recommend a visit.

This little shop is round the back of the owners house and is well worth stopping at. There are lots of lovely candles to purchase, and the tapered candles are a very good price at 5 for £5. Some of the larger candles are expensive but do last a long time and the colours and designs are a wonderful memento of the island.

very small outlet just off the main road through Staffin but so worth a visit if you like candles. They have some really unusual ones. I especially like the Northern Lights one - it is not scented but the effect is marvellous and my favourite scent is bluebell. they are also very good value. I visit here every time we go to Skye.

As my wife is into scented candles she was desperate to visit this shop hoping to see the candles being made. We were told as it was such a nice day the owner didn`t want to waste it making candles. So she just had to look around instead. She did buy a candle in a tin, but it doesn`t really give off much of a smell. So another let down. Wouldn`t rush back.

A must visit if you are visiting the Isle of Skye. Beautiful scented candles and tealights. There are other non candle gifts.
