About The Qilin

The Qilin is a magical beast whose mythology combines the essence of Scotland with the spirit of Asia. Galloping through eastern forests, proudly sporting a majestic horn and with a wreath of divine flames coating its equine form, it mirrors the Unicorn, the national symbol of Scotland. Their distant familial ties interweave the sterling values of Scotland with the magic of Asia, representing wisdom, justice and truth. Legend has it that all who commune with the Qilin reap the rewards of its benevolent spirit, finding good fortune and prosperity. Rich in character and flavour, echoing ages past, the Qilin brings elements of ancient mythology into the modern age.
