Deborah Anderson set up Be Coorie in 2018 as a Scottish lifestyle brand. Her boutique store located in Comrie, Perthshire is inspired by how she spends her life in the rolling hills, extraordinary glens and vast landscapes in the Highlands.
This isn’t a fad or whim; this is a mother’s ambition to capture the magic of growing up in a place rich in history, legend and landscape, where sustainability, the environment and one’s well-being has become paramount.
Be Coorie is mindful, responsible and ethical. As consumers, we’ve become increasingly conscious about our purchases, channelling the power of our vocalised objections to make a positive difference for the people involved in the making of our clothes and goods. There is no better place to experience this than the Highlands, where Be Coorie allows you to explore the magnificent Scottish countryside in an ethical and transparent way that considers both people and the planet. This isn’t just about shopping or travelling, this is about a way of life, almost a movement towards a better society where we are each responsible for the future of our planet.
Deborah believes in the ‘green traveller’, where sustainable tourism is something that we should all try to do. She is striving to change our mindset about ecotourism and the way we travel, whether it’s a long holiday in one of her beautiful holiday cottages or a weekend break in her Highland apartment, she has developed a range of travel experiences such as the Campervan Hire that do just that. She is a poster child of rural Scotland, providing her guests with powerful and authentic country sports experiences, fishing and hunting. She is an expert hunter gatherer, always seeking out rural and local produce and game meat that is both traceable and organic.
She is a passionate supporter of Scottish products and has created an enviable collection of interior and lifestyle goods in her boutique store in Perthshire, that encompass ethical, sustainable, and fair-trade values encouraging consumers to take part in conscious consumerism.
Be Coorie’s accommodation offering is both eclectic and luxurious. From a delightful holiday apartment within the hamlet of Dunira, near the village of Comrie to an isolated but contemporary cottage, beautifully equipped on the edge of an impressive country estate. The Be Coorie Campervan is definitely the modern way to see Scotland. One can wild camp, i.e. you can park up anywhere that takes your fancy, with no fees and no nonsense. There is an abundance of unique places to stay with wonderful views, including Scotland’s romantic lochs, mountains and breath-taking coastlines. In the evening, you can curl up in your luxurious campervan and be as close to nature as you wish.
Be Coorie’s ethical & sustainable experiences are the embodiment of artisan empowerment & allow customers to feel confident not only about their lifestyle choices but about their own self-care, conscious shopping and living. Deborah has curated an exceptional collection of interior and lifestyle products and eco-tourist activities that lay precedent to the new age lifestyle brand that we should all aspire to be like.
