Robert Mackie have ceased making traditional Scottish headwear. Last chance to buy as our remaining stock is very limited.

Our high quality diced Balmoral cap comes from an Ayrshire family firm who have making authentic Scottish bonnets for over 170 years. This black bonnet is knitted in wool and then milled to give a high quality felted effect. This black Balmoral hat has a band of red, white and black dicing. The left side of the Balmoral hat features a hessian backed grosgrain rosette, to which one of our clan cap badges can be affixed. Black grosgrain ribbon tails, black grosgrain trim and a classic red toorie (pom-pom or bobble) adorning the top, provide the finishing touches to this classic Scottish hat.

Beware of the poorly constructed cheap foreign imitations of diced Balmorals 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 standards.

The Balmoral bonnet evolved from the larger ancient broad bonnet which was worn for centuries throughout Scotland. The hat takes it name from the Balmoral estate in Aberdeenshire which was purchased by the Royal family in 1852 and remains to this day their summer residence.
