This evening, my theme is traditional weaving of Scottish Tartan. This is undertaken by powered hand loom and can still be found in isolated parts of Scotland. The images show weaving in process at Lochcarron Weavers, Lochcarron on the west of Scotland. I have also seen similar weaving in process on the Isle of Skye and Isle of Lewis. There are now some 5,000 approved tartans in Scotland.

Elsewhere today, I collected my next tour group from Glasgow Airport mid afternoon and transferred them to the Argyll Hotel, Glasgow in readiness for a Scotland and Ireland tour commencing tomorrow.

Have separately posted information on Mitchell family history to my Glasgow Ancestry blog.

Raining heavily here this evening in Glasgow. Hopefully, weather will improve tomorrow.
