Registration notes: The Crieff & Stathearn Museum tartan blends notable historical elements of the town and its surroundings. Based on the Royal Stewart tartan (reputed to have been worn on social occasions by Bonnie Prince Charlie), it commemorates the Prince’s connection with Crieff – on his way to fateful Culloden, his horse was shod by a local King Street blacksmith and his war council was held uphill from the old Drummond Arms in James Square. The town also knew Rob Roy MacGregor, his escapades and dealings at the famous annual cattle market, the Crieff Tryst, and the design includes red and black of the Old MacGregor/Rob Roy tartan. The colours of the design also echo those of the Drovers’ Tryst tartan, the browns and greens of the moors, forests and grazings that comprised the ancient drove routes to the Crieff markets. Finally, the central blue on green is intended to represent Strathearn, the broad valley of the river Earn where the ‘frontier town’ of Crieff was originally established on the Knock of Crieff.
