Our Team


Josie (Johanna) Morrison - Production & Quality Control Manager

Buth Bheag Candle Co - Our Team

Josie is native to Harris and has a great love for the Island. Prior to Buth Bheag, Josie spent several years working within the care sector and latterly a local hotel. Deenie (co-founder of the company) has been Josies close friend for many years so when she offered Josie a position in her new business venture, Josie happily accepted & has since become an integral part in the creation and distribution of Buth Bheag Candle Co products. Josie loves long walks, spending time with her family and her kitten Olly.

Cat (Catriona) Campbell - Marketing & Social Media Chief

Buth Bheag Candle Co - Our Team

With strong connections to the island as her Dad is from Lewis and was the Head Teacher in Harris for 12 years, Cat moved to the Western Isles in 2011 to live closer to her Dad and to study at the local college.  She had previously worked with Jamie (co-founder of the company), so after graduating with a degree in Business and Management she asked Jamie if he was hiring and the rest is history! Cat helps with running Buth Bheag social media accounts, admin & running the shop. Cat loves keeping fit, her cat Charlie and watching boxsets.

Kirsty (Beag) Macleod - Production & Distribution Associate

Buth Bheag Candle Co

Mum of two, Fraser (7) & Ellie Rose (6), Kirsty has lived on the Isle of Harris all her life and wouldn't want to live anywhere else! Kirsty is the newest addition the team and she is going to be Josie's right-hand woman in production, quality control and distribution. Although Kirsty is a busy parent, she somehow manages to find the time to bake the most AMAZING cakes - you will no doubt see us bragging about them on social media from time to time! Kirsty loves spending time with her family, her adorable Sausage dog Cooper and of course - baking!

Christine (Deenie) Macleod - Creative Director & CEO

Buth Bheag Candle Co - Our Team

Deenie is also native to the isle of Harris. Previous to becoming an entrepreneur, Deenie managed a local Harris Tweed shop for many years. Deenie has an 21month old son called Aaron, so her time is split between keeping up with him and running Buth Bheag Candle Co. In her spare time (not that there is very much of that!) Deenie is also a Harris Tweed Weaver, her tweed has been used to create various products which are on sale in the Inverness Airport branch of Buth Bheag Candle Co. Deenie loves spending time with her family, retail therapy and catching up with her friends.

Jamie (James) McGowan - Growth & Strategy Executive & CEO

Buth Bheag Candle Co - Our Team

Originally from Glasgow Jamie moved to the Isle of Harris to work in a local Hotel. After managing said hotel for several years, Jamie had a business idea of his own and within months the idea had become a reality; Buth Bheag Candle Co was born. As co-founder Jamie is involved of all aspects of the business but primarily concentrates on generating business and customer relations. Jamie loves to spend time with his son Aaron, playing squash and meeting new people.
