Registration notes: The tartan’s design and colours have been inspired by the historic and picturesque royal burgh of Culross, in West Fife. This ancient village, steeped in heritage and folklore, was founded by St Serf in the 6th century and has long been a place of pilgrimage, with the ruins of the Cistercian Abbey. In the 17th century, it became famous as a bustling trading port under the direction of Sir George Bruce, and much of its unique architecture and cobbled streets stem from this era. The blues and greens of the tartan reflect its stunning estuary location on the Firth of Forth, while the orange representing gold, red, brown and black shades were chosen to echo the various distinctive architectural features of the village, including the famous ochre Culross Palace. The Culross tartan brings together these inspirational elements to reflect the village’s unique Scottish heritage.
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.
