* Win a Free 8 yard Bell Rock Kilt! *

Buy a numbered limited edition Belle McRock, and enter into the prize draw.

After the edition of bears are sold out, the winning bear entitles the owner to a free eight yard Bell Rock Lighthouse Kilt (valued at £455), tailored to fit the person of your choice ...yourself, a friend or family member!

The Bell Rock tartan was designed to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Bell Rock Lighthouse, first lit on 1 February 1811.

Owned and operated by the Northern Lighthouse Board, the lighthouse lies on the treacherous Inchcape Rock (also called Bell Rock), 11 miles off Arbroath, on the Scottish east coast. The lighthouse stands 35 metres tall. Built with a work force of approximately 110 men, the challenges faced in its construction led to it being described as one of the 'Seven Wonders of the Industrial World'.

The tartan was approved by the Northern Lighthouse Board and adopted as its official corporate tartan on 12 October 2012.
