STA ref: 5799
STWR ref: none
Designer: Stewart, D C
Tartan date: 01/01/2003
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Name
Registration notes: Tartan designed by D.C. Stewart at the request of Sir Iain Moncrieffe for his wife's stepfather Lord Dundee and Lord Glassary. Design, although closely following Sir Ian's guide lines was firmly rejected by Lord Glassary saying he now wished the tartan in 'Red, yellow and a little blue' only. This was in June-August 1970. With the exception of J R Dalgetty's Collection this is probably the only record of these three setts in existence. Two new setts were submitted but were 'not met with the courtesy of an acknowledgement.' Stuart Davidson 9.6.84

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.
