Tartan Details - Lochside

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

Reference: 12123
Designer: Gordon Nicolson Kiltmakers
Tartan date: 14/04/2018
Registration date: 24 April 2018
Category: Other
Restrictions: Yes. Permission must be sought from Michael S Fraser to wear/use this tartan.
Prepared for weaving by Gordon Nicolson Kiltmakerrs.

Registration notes: Michael and his wife purchased a ruined croft in the North West Highlands, near the small town of Lochinver in 1996. The couple and their four young boys set about renovating the place over a period of three years. The croft was de-crofted and the cottage, “Lochside Cottage”, remained a favourite destination for their family holidays. This tartan design was based on their family tartan Fraser Hunting (STA ref 1659) with the extra white line representing the hours they spent whitewashing the property to ensure it was maintained and the blue representing the small loch in front of the cottage with the sea also visible in the near distance.
