A new tartan has been created to celebrate the 250th birthday of a Highland town which has its roots in weaving.
The concept is part of Grantown 250 – The Strathspey Seven Festivals, which will focus on seven themes, food and drink, heritage, environment, tourism, trade, music and sport from June 21-28.
The new plaid takes a modern twist on the traditional Grant pattern, with the addition of a yellow flash through the middle, and it will be made into key-rings to be sold as keepsakes for the historic occasion.
People who want to get involved will be able to help weave the new tartan on June 21 at the opening ceremony.
It has been created by Lindsey Patton, of Tigh Na Weave in Grantown.
She said: “The festival is very much a community event and this was a way that I could combine my passion and get involved.
“Historically, Grantown was a weaving town so I thought it was very apt for the celebrations to have its own tartan.
“The new Grantown tartan is based on the old Grant tartan but it has a bright yellow flash going through it which reflects the Grantown 250 logo.
“The yellow stripe makes it more modern, but the design is sympathetic to the old Grant tartan too with the other colours looking quite ancient.”
Bill Sadler, of the Grantown Society, which is organising the event, said: “Given the history of Grantown as a weaving town, I can see nothing more fitting than having a new tartan created especially for this event.
“The Grant tartan, like so many others, has a long and most interesting history.”
