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 attained by the Royal family in 1852 and serves as their summer residence.
Our black Balmoral hat features a black grosgrain rosette, to which one of our clan cap badges can be pinned. Black grosgrain ribbon tails and trim and a classic red toorie (pom-pom or bobble) adorns the top, to provide the finishing touches to this classic Scottish hat.
Also available in diced black and plain green. Sizes 6 to 7 7/8.
