Situated in the North West Highlands, you can find us on the part of the map where the land breathes magic and the sea starts to flow over the edge of the world. Surrounded by remote unspoiled white sand beaches, breathtakingly beautiful mountain scenery and magnificent coastal views. We are nestled in the tiny picture postcard hamlet of Drumbeg.
The tiny village of Drumbeg, is about half way along the B869 coastal route, part of the 'famous' NC500, we are a perfect ‘stopping off’ point along this 23 mile single track road. Run by Mum & Son team Helen & Danny. A warm welcome waits at our wee Highland Candle Shop where we produce our own products. What appears from the roadside to be just a small shed, let your curiosity get the better of you and come down to discover a shop packed with a luxurious handmade range you cant buy anywhere else and a beautiful hidden Tea Garden where we serve irresistible cakes, clotted cream scones, sandwiches, and hot and cold drinks including homemade lemonade, and our 'famous' fully loaded hot chocolates! You will find plenty of ideas for presents for friends and family or for yourself.
