Who Are We?
Candle Shack is a family run business, established by me (Cheryl MacLean) and my friend Natasha Skelton. As mothers of young children and lovers of scented candles, we were keen to find quality candles that combined excellent design and scent-throw without costing the earth. Natasha and I decided to design our own range of candles and launched the business in 2010, supported by our husbands; Duncan and James.
All of our products are hand-made in Scotland using the finest ingredients. We are committed to creating a range of high quality scented candles to suit all tastes. Our products are now providing our rapidly growing customer base with an affordable luxury that smells devine. Try a Candle Shack scented candle today!
