Tartan Details - Huntly

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

STA ref: 853
STWR ref: 853
Designer: Wilsons of Bannockburn
Tartan date: 01/01/1819
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: District
Registration notes: From Wilsons' 1819 - Marchioness of Huntly's tartan. Also from 'Old and Rare Scottish Tartans' published in 1893 by D.W. Stewart. The book was illustrated by samples woven in silk. The Huntly district tartan is known to have been worn at the time of the '45 rebellion by Brodies, Forbes', Gordons, MacRaes, Munros and Rosses which gives a strong indication of the greater antiquity of the 'District' setts compared to the Clan tartans. Jamie Scarlett MBE says (Jan 2005) that this tartan was the personal tartan of the Marchioness - thus the Wilson's name 'The Marchioness of Huntly's Tartan' but over time, because it contained the name 'Huntly' it became accepted and used as the district tartan for Huntly.

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.
