Island firm Bute Fabrics have ensured the Queen’s new depute lieutenant for Bute will be dressed to impress on official occasions.
Stewart Shaw was presented with a new kilt in the Ardroscadale tartan from the Rothesay-based company’s Stuart of Bute range this week.
Stewart took up the ceremonial role in May of this year, succeeding another Rothesay resident, Lyn Bulloch - who also received a gift of a kilt from Bute Fabrics, back in June of 2014.
Asked why he chose the Ardroscadale tartan, Stewart said: “I wanted to be totally different from the greens and blues I’ve worn in the past - and it also matches my jackets!”
The presentation was made by Bute Fabrics’ new managing director, John Glen, at the company’s Barone Road mill.
