Tartan Details - Dunans Rising

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Dunans Rising" tartan is shown below. 

Reference: 10821
Designer: Bute Fabrics
Tartan date: 25/02/2013
Registration date: 26 April 2013
Category: Corporate
Restrictions: Yes. Only for the use of those who have aided the restoration of Dunans Castle, including those who have contributed time, expertise or knowledge to the project (whether as part of a contract or voluntarily).
This tartan should only be woven to aid the restoration of the castle, and therefore only by permission of Dunans Castle Limited, the owner.

Registration notes: The tartan was first woven at Bute Fabrics from a design by Catherine Murray, as a commission by Charles Dixon-Spain, proprietor of and on behalf of Dunans Castle Limited, to aid and celebrate the ongoing restoration of Dunans Castle. Dunans Rising takes its inspiration from several sources: the colours and textures of the castle and castle policies, and in particular the exotic rhododendrons and splendid trees which surround this glorious B-listed structure; the light, love and laughter of the family who live on site, beside the castle; the building’s history and heritage; the community that lives in the glens and hills around Dunans; and lastly, and especially, the community of interest from all over the world who visit the castle and its grounds on a regular and ongoing basis, whether in person, or virtually.
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.
