To celebrate the launch of their new Interactive Clan Map, Lochcarron of Scotland are giving one lucky Adventures Around Scotland reader the chance to win a luxury, handwoven cashmere scarf of their choice.
Thanks to VisitScotland’s year of 'Homecoming' which reached out to Scottish diaspora around the world and the phenomenon that is Outlander, interest in the clans of Scotland has never been higher. When Lochcarron of Scotland got in touch to tell me about their new interactive clan map illustrating ancestral lands and geographical borders of Scottish clans I couldn’t wait to try it out.
The first of its kind, the map also allows you to hover over each clan name and discover its history, motto and tartan. The map took months to create and was developed in consultation with 121 clan societies. Although it is not a definitive guide, I personally think it is still a good resource for those interested in their clan ancestry. You can click here to explore the interactive map for yourself.
Lochcarron of Scotland was established in the Scottish Borders in 1892 and is the world's leading manufacturer of tartan. To celebrate the launch of their interactive map they have kindly provided one of their high quality cashmere scarves as a prize for one of my lucky readers! Their cashmere scarves are made from the finest fabrics and handwoven in the Lochcarron Mill in Selkirk in the Scottish Borders. With most designs retailing at over £100 they are the perfect handmade Scottish luxury accessory.
One lucky winner can choose from the 36 designs in the collection including contemporary and traditional tartans with ranges suitable for men and women. Here are a few of the gorgeous designs you could choose from and even if you aren’t lucky enough to win on this occasion they are ideal to add to your Christmas list! In fact there are lots of quality and stylish items on their website that would make ideal gifts and a few things I have got my eye on :-)
You can also see their tartan creations for yourself at their picturesque Weavers Shop in Lochcarron or take a trip to their Visitor Centre in the Scottish Borders where you can tour their famous mill
The competition is now closed and the winner is
