Bowater (Estate Check)
  • Notes: No sett for this. Margarter MacDougals (Inverness Museum) notes: "Seems to date from the 1859s (Lord Sandys had a piece made up in 1929) but the design would be about the time when Vansittart Bowater was equerry to the Prince Consort, and it is possible that he invented it since this was the time when almost all the district checks were being made up for the owners of the forest lands in Scotland." Sett: a marled worsted yarn in shades of heather, brown, black & red. It should be noted that the graphic is not accurate - it is merely using the colours specified but with no knowlegde as to arrangement or count.
