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...More

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