  • Notes: The Battle of Bannockburn tartan has been designed on behalf of the National Trust for Scotland by Christine MacLeod, property manager of Weaver?s Cottage in Kilbarchan. Colours: red represents the sacrifice and the feeling between the opposing armies; caramel in fine crossed lines for the colour and texture of old leather, wood, pikes and arrows; sage green for the carse at Stirling where the battle took place; deep blue to represent the very centre of the battle; red and gold for the clash of the two armies for the prize of the red and gold of the royal standard of Scotland. The combined colours have produced a beautiful, strong tartan which tells the story of The Battle of Bannockburn. The first piece of this tartan has been woven in Weaver?s Cottage by Christine on the 200 year old loom. Johnstons of Elgin will weave the tartan to produce scarves and blankets to be sold at The Battle of Bannockburn when it opens in 2014. In the future visitors at Bannockburn will be directed to Weaver's Cottage to visit the loom where the tartan was first woven and meet Christine who designed the tartan and wove the first piece. Likewise visitors to the cottage will see the sample of Bannockburn tartan and be directed to visit the Battle of Bannockburn. Permission must be sought from the National Trust for Scotland to wear, use or weave this tartan.
