Tartan Details - Killin

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

STA ref: 4042
STWR ref: 2739
Designer: Killin, Robert
Tartan date: 01/07/1999
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Registration notes: An asymmetric tartan woven by Lochcarron of Scotland for Burnett's and Struth of Canada in September 2000 as a personal tartan for Robert Killin of the Toronto-based family. The name is spreading from Ottowa to Vancouver and down into the USA and numbers over 250 as at September 2007. Family legend suggests a long history connected in some way with the village of Killin at the west end of Loch Tay. The tartan design was influenced by the clans from that area - the Campbells and the MacNabs. The family tells us (2007) that at least one member visits Killin each year, so the connection is very current and will remain a permanent touchstone for family members through the generations. Can be worn by anyone of the name. Lochcarron swatch.

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.
