Kisimul Castle, resides on a small island next to the island of Barra, in the Outer Hebrides. It is reached by boat only when the tide permits and in 1937 Roderick Lister Macneil rebuilt its fortifications after it lay abandoned for years. Sacked twice by the Vikings and inhabited by many generations of his family, he studied architecture to restore the castle to its historic glory. In high tide the waves crash against the ancient walls and salt crystals can be seen growing inside the dungeon. Its island is beautiful, mysterious and smells like its ancient waters.


Made with sea clay and smelling like sea salt, this gorgeous hand and body soap is named after the small island in the Outer Hebrides where my grandmother grew up. Though far North, the water looks tropical. Pink Himalayan sea salt adds a beautiful touch on the top of the bar and the sea clay used naturally colors the loaf and helps to remove impurities from your skin.
