John Muir Way kilt

Released in April 2014 to celebrate the opening of the eponymous 215 km John Muir Way, this tartan is an ode to the spectacular coastline of East Lothian.

The red stone cliffs and bright blue seas and skies of Dunbar remain much unchanged since a young John Muir began his long journey to America in 1849. Today, it is home to the Nicolson family - making this a tartan close to Gordon’s heart. With the approval of Scottish Natural Heritage, he married the vivid colours of his immediate landscape with carefully balanced green and browns. It is a design that seems likely to have delighted the great environmentalist himself.
