It’s a snowy blizzard here at Blackhouse HQ today. North East Scotland has been hit bad with weary winter weather, which has made us wonder whether we will manage to make it home tonight! This has got us contemplating about what would make the perfect ‘snowed in’ day.

Here is Blackhouse HQ’s essential ‘kit-list’ 


Wrapped up in cosy, comfortable clothing: jogging bottoms, a fleecy jumper and wearing Harris Tweed Sheepskin Slippers.

Listening To?

Soft idyllic tunes from the likes of Gillie MacKenzie: her voice is captivating.


A warm mug of rich creamy hot chocolate with plenty cream and marshmallows! (You can always add a splash of something stronger for extra fortification!)


Nothing beats your granny’s homemade soup.


Curled up on an Arthur’s Seat in front of a roaring wood-burning stove, feet propped up on a Blackhouse Cube…perfect.

What would be your perfect snow-day kit list?
