Collection: John Muir Way Tartan

John Muir Way kilt

 

John Muir was a man of many talents; farmer, naturalist, botanist, inventor, explorer, mountaineer, writer - but is best known as a pioneer of nature conservation.
April 2014 marked the centenary of Muirs death and the opening of the 215km celebratory John Muir Way. The trail stretches from his East Coast birthplace, through coastal, country and urban central Scotland, to Helensburgh on the West coast- the Muir familys departure point on their emigration to North America.
Gordon Nicolsons tartan design to honour Muir was inspired by " the Father of the National parks" legacy, and by the stunning coastline, countryside & Lammermuir hills which surround Dunbar. Today, it is home to the Nicolson family - securing  this tartans place close to Gordon’s heart.  It is a design that seems likely to have delighted the great environmentalist himself.
The colours woven represent;
Green & Brown - earthy nature
Blue - the sea & sky
Red - from the Dunbar tartan

Explore the relationship between the John Muir Way tartan and the spectacular coastline of East Lothian in The Kiltmakers Chronicle.
