Registration notes: A Personal tartan for David Cairns. At first glance the tartan colouring appears modernist but its roots are formed from an aged bedrock of greys which reflect the derivation of the family name Cairns, coming from the Scots word 'cairn' meaning a mound of rocks. This bedrock of colouring is further delineated by a a singular red line which strikes a strong note from the defining colour of the Cairns' crest - a red shield adorned with three martlets. It also reflects the indefatigable passion for life of the Cairns family.
Woven Sample: A woven sample of this tartan has been received by the Scottish Register of Tartans for permanent preservation in the National Records of Scotland.
