Designer: Lochcarron of Scotland
Tartan date: 1960s
Springweight, Lightweight, Mediumweight and Heavyweight.
Registration notes: This is the correct setting for Bowie (Tony Murray June 2008) and is based on a 1978 swatch from Lochcarron in the STA archives.. Also confirmed by JCT file which notes: "from Roy Bowie", but gives no other source or date. It is MacDonald (#419) with yellow added. Tony Murray says it dates to the 1960s. In 1992 TECA pointed out an error to Lochcarron in their 1990 weaving where black had replaced green between the two yellow lines. Jake Short of Lochcarron said that they would correct it, but since it had been in production for several years, they suggested it should be called "Black" Bowie which is shown at #3716.
