Robert Mackie have ceased making traditional Scottish headwear. Last chance to buy as our remaining stock is very limited.
The Balmoral bonnet evolved from
the larger ancient broad bonnet
which was worn for centuries
throughout Scotland. The hat takes
its name from the Balmoral estate
in Aberdeenshire which was
purchased by the Royal family in
1852 and remains to this day their
Our high quality plain Balmoral
cap comes from Robert Mackie, the only authentic Scottish manufacturer of individually hand crafted Glengarries and Balmorals, who have been making authentic
Scottish bonnets since the mid 1800's. The bonnet is knitted in the finest pure
wool and then milled to give the
high quality felted effect. Every Balmoral we sell is hand made to your measurements and is individually hand sewn by Scottish crafts men and women. The
left side of the Balmoral hat
features a hessian backed
grosgrain rosette, to which one of
our clan cap badges can be
affixed, grosgrain ribbon tails,
grosgrain trim with a classic
toorie (pom-pom or bobble)
adorning the top.
Beware of the poorly
constructed cheap foreign
imitations of Scots bonnets which
use cardboard stiffeners that soon
fall apart. The superior hessian
stiffeners used in our Scottish
caps will last for decades, every
hat is hand finished by skilled
craftsmen, using the finest
materials, which comply with
stringent Ministry of Defence
Available in black, navy, charcoal grey,
bottle green, chocolate brown, lovat blue, lovat
green, maroon, red, royal blue,
saxe blue and fawn. Traditionally, black and
navy hats have red toories,
whilst all other hats have
matching pom-poms, rosettes and trim.
Please take care to ensure
that you select the correct size
of Balmoral, as custom made items
cannot be returned once made.
