Special Scottish Gift Box

We have created so many unique gift boxes filled with food and drink produced in Scotland over the past several years, each one with a special person in mind. During the current COVID-19 lockdown in Scotland we are reminded how special each and every one of us is.

The shop is closed at the moment, but we’ll post again when we’re in a position to reopen and start posting our Special Scottish Gift Box with your loved one in mind.

Stay safe!

Scotland’s Love Affair With Candy

Stay Calm & Eat On

We have been incredibly lucky to meet a range of fantastically interesting customers who are often in Edinburgh for the first time. They are gushing about their experience of seeing the city and meeting Scots. Lucky us for being part of their holiday story when they return home.

We are fortunate to have been visited by Janet Christie of Scotland on Sunday who has translated our journey at Cranachan & Crowdie into a poetic, quirky story. We hope you’ll have a read and then pop in to see us.
