At Billiedoo I have been writing love letters for the special people in your life for over 10 years.
My little wooden heart shaped gifts contain messages of love and friendship to mark all the important occasions in life and the ‘just because’ moments too.
Designed to last forever, my hearts are a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to a card, at not much more in price.
You can choose one from my ‘ready to buy’ range or use our Design Your Own service to make a unique heart for any occasion. Each one comes packaged in an envelope just like a love letter should.
Alongside our hearts we offer a range of beautiful Scottish gifts, mostly handmade by other small makers and businesses across Scotland.
We stock candles, soaps, skincare products, textiles, ceramics, homeware, baby gifts, chocolates and kids toys, as well as a range of ‘Comrie’ related gifts.
These gifts can be combined with a heart in one of our popular Billiebox giftboxes or purchased on their own.
Our hearts and gifts are available to order online at www.billiedoo.com Personalised Gifts, Heartfelt Gifts and Gift Boxes.
If you’d prefer to visit in person, you will also find me in my Pop Up shop every Friday and Saturday from 11am. I’m in Melville Square, Comrie, right opposite the Royal Hotel. It’s an office Monday to Thursday but my shop every weekend with something for everyone and every pocket.
So if you see my sign just next to the Fruit shop, I’m in my Pop Up just around the corner. Pop in and say hello!
Hi, I’m Rachel and Scents of the Wild came to be through my love of nature, natural products, and aromatherapy which I studied for several years.
I make natural soy candles and wax melts scented with my own blends of pure essential oils in my (very fragrant!) Comrie kitchen. Each candle is decorated with colourful dried botanicals, gathered here in Comrie where possible.
As a big believer that natural products are best for our health and wellbeing, you can be sure that my products never contain artificial fragrance or other synthetic additives.
They’re also made with vegan, cruelty-free and eco-friendly ingredients, with recyclable, plastic-free packaging.
All of my products make a beautiful gift for nature-lovers and people who are health and wellness-conscious, or as a self-care treat for yourself.
You can find my candles and wax melts at our wonderful Comrie Post Office and also at the lovely Alison’s Billiedoo pop-up shop in the square opposite the Royal Hotel on Fridays and Saturdays.
My full range of Scents of the Wild products are also available to order through my website… I post to my customers all over the UK (and beyond!) and can also deliver to you if you're within Comrie village.
I hope you love the scents!
I'm a fine art printmaker specialising in soft ground etchings. I create affordable, limited edition prints inspired by my love of nature and Tribal Art.
I studied at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and was a member of Edinburgh Printmakers before moving to Comrie.
I now work from my studio in the back garden af Gould Cottage, Drummond Street, PH6 2DS and visitors are very welcome by appointment.
I exhibit at the Goldfinch Gallery Comrie and sell at Scottish Craft Fairs. I have twice been awarded a prize at the Teeside Print Prize and have had my work exhibited at the RSA.
My small prints are £35 mounted and £45 framed and make ideal gifts if you are looking for something a little bit different.
