Celebrating Scotland's heritage on St Andrew's Day

Today (Monday 30th November) is St Andrews Day; Scotland's National day which celebrates Andrew the Apostle.

It's a day that is often celebrated with feasts of Scotland's favourite combo; haggis, neeps and tatties and of course, a dram of whisky or two!

Coming at the end of November, for many it also marks the start of the month of festivities ahead. We have reached the delightful time of the year where we honour special Scottish traditions and celebrate our stunning surroundings. For us at Shearer Candles, there is one range that does just that beautifully; The Highland Collection.

Inspired by Shearer's Scottish heritage, The Highland Collection presents five wonderful fragrances, wrapped in beautiful dark glass vessels and tartan gift boxes. This wonderful range of candles and diffusers make perfect souvenirs or gifts, ideal for first footings and Burns' Suppers.



Hogmanay is the festival that marks the start of a new year. Our Hogmanay fragrance is a celebration of festive spices, juniper berry and white heather. These scented candles and diffusers are the perfect gift for first footers to celebrate the start of a new year. Explore...
