The story of weaving in Lochcarron started back in 1938 when Mr Wood was sent from Galashiels, in the Scottish Borders from the home of the company.  He was to teach the art of weaving to the folk of Strathcarron.

Local wool spun by the women of Lochcarron and the surrounding parishes was used in the making of tweeds, white blankets and rugs.  Woven on handlooms the products were first exhibited at the Kyle of Lochalsh Show.  Since these humble beginnings, Lochcarron of Scotland has gone on to become the world’s leading manufacturer of tartan.  And we are very proud that the company still bears the name of where it all began more than 60 years ago.

Step inside our quintessentially Scottish store and you will find a wonderful range of tartans, luxury knitwear, kilts and tweed clothing, all complemented beautifully with just the right accessories. You can buy these top quality Scottish products in the finest natural fibres including cashmere, lamora, mohair and lambswool. We look forward to welcoming you here to Lochcarron Weavers very soon.

A simply beautiful part of the world. I stayed near Gairloch with my family recently, and we'll certainly be back.
