Registration notes: An eight-colour tartan for Lanark Highlands - a large township of 1033 square kilometres with a delightful rural landscape of rolling hills, heavily forested areas, rocky terrain and countless clean rivers, streams and lakes. It lies some 75 km southwest of downtown Ottawa and 100 km north west of Kingston. It is sparsely populated with only 4,800 permanent residents plus an additional 6,000 seasonal residents. Lanark Village represents the largest village in the Highlands with a population of 960. Other small communities, consisting of perhaps a general store with a lunch counter and gas bar, a community hall and a church dot the landscape. While Lanark Highlands has a population density of less than 5 persons per square kilometre, some one million persons live within a 90 minute drive.

Please note

Where tartans were recorded before the establishment of the Scottish Register of Tartans (SRT) on 5 February 2009, the original Scottish Tartans Authority (STA) and the Scottish Tartans World Register (STWR) reference numbers have been retained. The new SRT reference number can be found in the address box on your browser (url).

The registration criteria now applied by the Register conforms to the Scottish Register of Tartans Act 2008. These criteria are different to those previously applied by either the STA or the STWR. You may wish to refer to the STA website for further information on the original recording of this tartan.
