This large notebook/journal (21cm x 13cm) with 192 pages (one side blank, one side ruled) is bound in authentic tartan cloth made in the UK and made from the Blue Loch Tartan. This tartan includes the blue and white of the Scottish saltire and other blues that reflect Scotland's lochs and rivers - iconic features of the Scottish landscape. The sky blue with gold over-check symbolises the beauty of Scotland on a fine summer's day.
This series of Tartan Notebooks celebrates Scottish Traditions - the many unique features of Scotland and its people. History, clans and tartans, the landscape of Scotland - hills, glens, mountains, lochs and rivers guarded by the many castles and strongholds of Scotland, some ancient and ruined, but each one full of history, with a story to tell.
