COVID-19 Information

The Scottish Government has announced Covid-19 lockdown restrictions throughout mainland Scotland starting from Tuesday 5th January 2021 and lasting until at least the 26th of April 2021.

This means our wee shop will be closed, and our walking tours suspended, for that period.

While these restrictions are in force, you can still book our tours for later in 2021, or purchase a wee treat for yourself or someone you know from our online shop.

We aim to reopen as soon as it is permissible (and we deem it safe) to do so. We will update this information as soon as the situation changes.

Final Flame tealight holder

Real-life sinister cowled figures know better than to sit meditating with a naked flame perched betwixt their crossed ankles, especially when their flowing robe happens to be 100% polyester.

This chap should be all right though. His hand-painted resin form remains absolutely motionless and perfectly spirit level while toting your tealight as long as it lasts.

Height: 16cm approx.


Skull votive tea light holders

When these arrived, one staffer exclaimed: "At last! Shot glasses designed for Scottish people!"

Yet while these Gothic glass vessels might indeed serve to hold a generous measure of uisge beatha, that is not their intended purpose. These vasculiform votives are in fact for holding tea lights (not included).

Perfect for casting eerie flickering skull shadows around your crypt/bedsit/debating-chamber.


Hieroglyphic Skull

It seems it wasn't just the Celts who were given to post-mortem whittling of their fallen citizens' brain-cases. And since the ancient Egyptians' hieroglyphics were also their language, these skulls are in fact messages from the past.

We hired an Egyptologist to research the markings on this cheery fellow, which yielded the following:

2 pints of semi-skimmed

168 litres of asses' milk (need a bath)

1 yoghurt


Gothic Roses goblet

While a death is always a time of loss, let's not forget that it is also a horticultural opportunity. When we go to sleep in the earth, the earth benefits, and erelong new life bursts forth. (OK, a bunch of roses will never replace uncle Fred, but you have to see the bigger picture.)
