Tartan Details - MacLean of Duart Hunting

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

STA ref: 824
STWR ref: 824
Designer: Sobieski Stewarts, The
Tartan date: 01/01/1842
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Registration notes: Scottish Tartans Society notes: Perhaps dating back as far as 1587 but there is some debate as to the validity of the historical evidence. A charter granted to Hector MacLean, Heir of Duart, in the lands of Islay, the feu duty to be payable in the form of 60 ells cloth of white, black and green colours. This may well account for the colours, the proportions being the invention of the Sobieski Stuarts. Jamie Scarlett MBE says no evidence for the 1587 claim (P133 of Highland Textile.) Green lightened in this graphic to show the sett.

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.
