Kilgour & Donald Kilgour & Donald is an emerging name in Scottish fashion and design. Cousins, Alison (Kilgour) and Angela (Donald) have teamed up to create beautifully styled and tailored pieces using the finest British fabrics. Their design inspiration is drawn from the big fashion houses of Chanel and Westwood, creating a small but perfectly formed collection of unique pieces which can be individually tailored to give the perfect fit.

The story of The Angel’s Share is told through producers of whisky; Long before science proved them wrong, it was believed whilst the whisky matured in the barrels, the angels came down and took a small amount of whisky before bottling. This was known as ‘The Angel’s Share’. During the scotch whisky maturation process, it is expected that almost 2% of whisky is lost from the oak cask.

Tom & Karen have captured this spirit in a handmade glass angel but also use the legend as inspiration for many their designs. Products can be found nationwide and locally at Woodwinters on Henderson St. Also shipping worldwide, the company now operates an online shop. For more details on this local legend visit


Growing up in a small mining village where generations of women became seamstresses for Wrangler and Snowgoose, Kilgour & Donald have a mid-term goal of reinvigorating that now latent seamstress skill in the local area. Each piece will be made locally, enabling them to legitimately claim to be both designed and made in Scotland.

Kilgour & Donald also offer a bespoke service where one of a kind dresses, jackets, and outfits can be designed, styled and made for the individual client; perfect for Mother of the Bride or Groom or any special occasion. Kilgour & Donald designs have been showcased in Paris and the duo are now working on the launch of their inaugural collection which will be unveiled in Autumn 2015 and available exclusively at Country Pursuits.
