Tartan Details - MacGlashan #3

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "MacGlashan #3" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 7152
STWR ref: none
Designer: Not Specified
Tartan date: 01/01/1983
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Registration notes: Said to have been provided by a Mr. MacGlashan who sent Phil Smith a swatch which was passed on to the Scottish Tartans Society. Mr. MacGlashan was an elderly man at that time (1976 or 1983) and reported that this was a piece of his great, great, grandfather's kilt from Lochaber, C.1800. However . . Sindex notes say: 'Machine woven Saxony cloth makes a mockery of the so called age and use. The specimen is more likely to be part of a mid-19th century blanket.' In 2007 a customer of McColls of Elgin asked for it to be woven and showed a photograph of his grandfather wearing it. See #656 (original Scottish Tartans Authority reference) which is very similar and also said to be a 'sample from Jack Dalgety.'

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.
