Designer: Not Specified
Tartan date: Not Specified
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.

Registration notes: Taken from a piece of tartan of uncertain age but said to be woven in 1783 in Knockando, Morayshire. Source said to be William Donald Laing of Queensland, Australia who donated it to the Scottish Tartans Society in 1996. The dark line in the centre of the red band is either blue or black. Apparently William Laing acquired the piece of tartan in 1961 from a Mr Jack Garden whose great great grandfather was John Laing (date of birth 1767) who wove the tartan. In the 1810 census he lived in his shop in the Square at Archiestown.

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.
