New Black Watch Tartan

A new tartan named in honour of the Black Watch, known as the Red Hackle Tartan, has been unveiled. Designed by Perthshire-based House of Edgar, some of the money raised through its purchase will be given to the Black Watch Heritage Appeal, which looks after the regimental museum.
