The late Scotty was one of north America's leading experts on tartan and was a prolific author, his most popular book being 'So you're going to wear the kilt?' He also co-authored 'Scotland's Forged Tartans' with the father of modern tartan research, the late D.C. Stewart. The pipe band was formed in 1984. Although membership is open to anyone interested in bagpiping or drumming the band was created to enhance the public image of the Police Department.

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.
