Tartan Details - Eglinton

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Eglinton" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 2075
STWR ref: 2075
Designer: Wilsons of Bannockburn
Tartan date: 01/01/1707
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: District
Registration notes: From the Canongate Tolbooth in Edinburgh. Scottish Tartans Society notes: The Eglinton tartan is the Montgomerie (ITI 1082) that uses a blue ground in place of a purple but that may be due to the frequent confusion with Wilson's purple which was a very dark blue with a slight reddish tinge. D.W. Stewart in his book, Old and Rare, was of the opinion that the Montgomerie tartan was adopted by the Montgomeries of Ayrshire in 1707. He stated that in 1893 there were historic relics at Eglinton Castle which furnished evidence of the early use of the tartan.

Please note

Where tartans were recorded before the establishment of the Scottish Register of Tartans (SRT) on 5 February 2009, the original Scottish Tartans Authority (STA) and the Scottish Tartans World Register (STWR) reference numbers have been retained. The new SRT reference number can be found in the address box on your browser (url).

The registration criteria now applied by the Register conforms to the Scottish Register of Tartans Act 2008. These criteria are different to those previously applied by either the STA or the STWR. You may wish to refer to the STA website for further information on the original recording of this tartan.
