Visit Scotland

The MacNaughton Group

The business began over two hundred years ago at a small farm called Remony, on the banks of Loch Tay near Aberfeldy, Perthshire. Alexander Macnaughton had worked as a tenant farmer, but in 1783 he decided to set up a small spinning mill to process both his and his neighbour’s wool. Later two of his six sons took over and continued the trade at Remony until 1835. In that year, Alexander’s grandson William moved to Pitlochry in the next valley, took a lease on some ground beside the Moulin Burn, and set up a new spinning and weaving company.

Radical Weavers

Let’s take a step back in time to the early 19th century. The city of Stirling, Scotland, witnessed a movement that would forever alter the course of Scottish history – the Radical Weavers of Stirling. These artisans were not just skilled craftspeople; they were pioneers of change, advocating for workers’ rights, social justice, and artistic freedom.

The essence of Radical Weavers’ spirit has now found a new home in our business. Weaving is not just about threads and fibres; it’s about weaving together stories, cultures, and ideas. By adopting the name Radical Weavers, we pay homage to those who dared to challenge conventions and redefine the boundaries of creativity.

Experience Stirling Highland Games

Stirling Highland Games tartan

Stirling Highland Games tartan is a 100% wool and recognised quality product woven in Scotland.

The tartan was designed with the 1870 games committee in mind as 23rd July 2020 marked the 150 years anniversary of those Games. We were keen to recognise the 3 members of that committee’s contribution by including a colour from each of their clan tartan in our design. The 3 Members of the 1870 Stirling Highland Games Association were: Col. McPherson, appointed Chairman; James Graham 4th Duke of Montrose and appointed President; Charles Murray 7th Earl of Dunmore and appointed Steward.
