The Story Behind the Ring
The Flower of Scotland
Created as a tribute to Roy Williamson, writer of the Scottish National song "The Flower of Scotland", this tartan pattern is applicable to all Scots as it is not associated with a particular clan.
The design is based on the setting and thread count of the Gunn tartan, as worn by Roy Williamson, using the traditional 18th-century colors of Lichen Green and Lochan Blue.
Dark Indian Rosewood
Our Indian Rosewood has this wonderful dark, chocolaty appearance, with some tones of deep red as well. Rosewood was chosen for this design not only because it compliments the tartan colors very well, but also because it is a wood often used in bagpipes. Rosewood is a very hard wood with great moisture and rot resistance. These features along with its excellent tonal qualities, it’s easy to see why it is such a popular wood among bagpipe enthusiasts.
