Tartan Details - Ferguson of Balquhidder #2

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Ferguson of Balquhidder #2" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 738
STWR ref: 738
Designer: Not Specified
Tartan date: 01/01/1831
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Registration notes: Scottish Tartans Society notes: Logan records only two threads for the red stripe. D.C. Stewart calls this Ferguson of Balquhidder to differentiate it from the Ferguson of Atholl - of whom they were followers. The green band on the broad blue is now often shown as black. Chiefs of the Clan are the Fergussons of Kilkerran, descended from Fergus of Dalriada, who brought the 'Stone of Scone' to Scotland. The Fergussons of Perthshire were recognised as the principal Highland branch of the clan and the chiefship belonged to 'MacFhearghuis' of Dunfallandy. The present day chief is Sir Charles Fergusson of Kilkerran, But Scottish Tartan Society has alternative sample from MacGregor Hastie Collection in which the green strip in the blue has been changed to black.

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.
