Lochcarron produced this tartan in January 2008, around the anniversary of the National Bard, Robert Burns. Wishing to mark his 250th anniversary to be celebrated the following year, the name Auld Scotland was inspired by the modern version of his toast to the Haggis.

The colours used are reminiscent of those associated with the Ayrshire countryside. The pale Yellow which is strongly featured recognises the importance of the barley used to create Scotland's National drink, whisky, traditionally used to toast the Haggis, which has itself a base of golden oats. Although Burns, being a Lowlander, would have been unlikely to wear tartan, had Auld Scotland been in existence, we feel sure he would have enjoyed wearing such a design, as would his 'drouthy cronies’ whilst perhaps gathering for a haggis supper.

Auld Scotland is quoted in the following final verse of the immortal toast.

Ye Pow's wha mak mankind your care,

And dish them out their bill o' fare,

Auld Scotland wants nae shinking ware

That jaups in luggies;

But, if you wish her gratefu' pray'r,

Gie her a Haggis!
