MacKinnon Watches: Celebrating Excellence in Scottish Tartan Watches

Exciting News from MacKinnon Watches

We have some thrilling news to share from the world of Scottish Tartan Watches! MacKinnon Watches has been nominated for two prestigious awards at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2023.
MacKinnon Watches has earned recognition in the categories of 'Young Entrepreneur of the Year' and 'Family Entrepreneur of the Year.' This honour fills us with immense pride and we can’t wait to attend the event in London later this year, wearing our kilts and showing off our best tartan outfits.


About The Great British Entrepreneur Awards

The Great British Entrepreneur Awards, acknowledges and champions the hard work and uplifting stories of business owners across the UK, with an emphasis on their journey and resilience over financial achievements. It’s often been described as the “Grammys of Entrepreneurship”, so it’s quite surreal that we will be joining the finals.

Twelve awards will be given out per region for categories including Disruptor of the Year, Entrepreneur for Good Award, and the Great British Entrepreneur of the Year. Notable winners from previous years include Social Chain founder Steven Bartlett, who went on to become the youngest ever investor on BBC’s Dragon’s Den.

Our commitment to excellence was also recognised at the GBEA 2022. We were nominated as 'Family Entrepreneur of the Year’. Being shortlisted again this year only underscores the passion, dedication, and craftsmanship that goes into every tartan watch we create.

The MacKinnon Watches Clan

As we reflect upon starting the business from our cottage in the Highlands, just two and a half years ago, we would like to give our heartfelt thanks to all of you for believing in our vision. Without the continued support of the clan, we could not have done this without you all.

MacKinnon Watches isn't just a business; it's a global community that celebrates and promotes Scottish culture and heritage.

Would you happen to have a picture of what the Farmer tartan watch would look like. If you do would you send me one of a two sizes you have? I have two son’s getting married and I think this would be a fitting gift for them and their wives.
