Tartan Details - West Highland Way

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

STA ref: 6837
STWR ref: none
Designer: Wilton, Brian
Tartan date: 01/09/2005
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Corporate
Registration notes: The West Highland Way travels through a clutch of traditional clan territories - Graham, Cunningham and Buchanan in the south, MacGregor in the middle reaches and then on through MacDonald, Campbell and Cameron country in the north. This design is based on the Campbell tartan circa 1725 and uses the corporate colours of the West Highland Way. The grey lines represent the Way itself and the green and purple symbolise the huge swathes of magnificent scenery along the Way. Red and black are grim reminders of the bloodthirsty past associated with so many of the traditional clan territories en route. Woven by Lochcarron.

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.
