Item Details
How thrilling to find out our needlepoint cushions are adorning the sofa in one of the rooms at @castleofmey in Scotland! On 16 June 1952, the recently-widowed Queen Mother arrived in Caithness to visit her childhood friend, Lady Doris Vyner. It helped her recover. While driving around the area, she caught sight of Barrogill Castle (as Castle of Mey was then known) ‘Do you think it would suit me?’ she asked her hostess. She then bought it, restored it, and used it as her Scottish sanctuary for many years until her death when the Trust opened to the public. From top left clockwise: Golden urn with carnation & peonies, Roses & cornflowers and Hillocks with carnations & tulips. While the last two are no longer available, you can still find the Golden urn cushion available to buy online on our website. Swipe through to see all our featured cushions.
