    Robert Mackie Balmoral

    I'm thinking of buying a Mackie balmoral. Is the one pictured below lovat blue or lovat green? I've seen it labeled both ways.

    Thanks!

    Looks like bottle green to me... I have one just like it.

    The color is more obvious on the diced version:

    The bonnet in your post is described on the J. Higgins site as "Balmoral Plain Robert Mackie (Special Mix & Match Colors)" https://www.jhiggins.net/balmoral-pl...-match-colors/
    It differs from both the loval blue and lovat green Robert Mackie bonnets on their site, which are at the following links:

    I checked with JHiggins.net and you are correct, Shaun. This one is bottle green.

    The Balmoral in the photo is Lovat blue. The photos of ours at The House of Labhran show it pretty well. They are Robert Mackie Balmorals we stock in answer to your question.

    Hope that helps. House of Labhran
