The cromach, the symbol of this Company, is a long stick with a curved top used in the Scottish highlands by a person who is an expert at guiding people, who looks after stock and who is an organiser of highland games.

The cromatch depicted in the Website was made by Robert Cardno from Cairnbulg, Dundee, Scotland.

The cromach is often used in Scottish songs:

“A far croonin’ is pulling me away,

As take I wi’ my cromach to the road

Oh, the far Coolins are putting love on me,

As step I wi’ my cromach to the Isles.”

(The Road to the Isles)
