Fascaray

This tartan celebrates the fictional Hebridean island of Fascaray, setting of the novel 'Hame' by Annalena McAfee. Its colours are drawn from the natural world of the region: sea mist grey; the eggshell blue of frozen burns; green for native pines and lichen; mauve for heather; brown for peat; and sapphire blue for summer seas.

Oor Wullie (DC Thomson)

Oor Wullie's tartan is based on the Black Watch which was his Uncle Wattie's regiment and in this new design the red is from the hackle on their famous bonnets. The silver grey is for Wullie's iconic bucket and for his faithful pet, Jeemie the moose. The black is for his mentor PC Murdoch and for Wullie's dungarees, the yellow is for his tousled gold locks that never see a comb. The three red lines on the yellow are for his best pals Fat Bob, Soapy Soutar and Wee Eck. The black and white are for the newsprint of The Sunday Post in which Wullie and his pals have lived for 75 years.
