West Highland Museum

Happy Valentine’s Day!

As we all know as Hunters our Hunterston Brooch on display at the Scottish Museum is a very special part of our heritage.

On display at the West Highland Museum is a traditional Scottish brooch celebrating love and today I would like to share that beautiful heartbrooch. It was usually gifted by a man on his betrothal to his sweetheart, or to the bride by the groom on their wedding day.

This type of brooch, sometimes called a Luckenbooth brooch, is still a very popular gift for weddings today. Many Scots gift the brooch as a symbol of Scottish tradition and good luck.
