Tartan Details - Glenurquhart Estate Check

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

STA ref: 5048
STWR ref: none
Designer: Macdougall, Elizabeth
Tartan date: 01/01/1840
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: District
Registration notes: From E S Harrison's 1968 book 'Our Scottish District Checks' : This is one of a small list of outstanding designs that have influenced designers all over the western world in men's and women's clothing. Adopted in the 1840s by Lady Caroline Countess of Seafield for her Glen Urquhart estate. Being a handloom weaver she is sometimes credited with being the designer but it seems more probable that it was made up by Elizabeth Macdougall of Lewston, a little village at the foot of the glen.

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.
