Tartan Details - Rennie (Personal)

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Rennie (Personal)" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 716
STWR ref: 716
Designer: MacDonald, Peter
Tartan date: 01/01/1980
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Name
Registration notes: Designed for Robin Rennie, Fife during the early 1980's and based on an old Wilsons' sample of Gunn. The Tartan Society accreditation list gives the author and weaver, James Scarlett, as the designer in 1980 but JDS had no knowledge of it (May 2005) so it is assumed that the designer was Peter MacDonald who worked as a weaver for the Scottish Tartans Society in 1981. Rennies, Rainys and Rainnies (from 'Ranald') are listed as a sept of MacDonell of Keppoch. Sample in Scottish Tartans Authority Scarlett Collection. Scottish Tartans Society count from 1982 differs in proportions from the woven samples. Green should be verging on khaki.

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.
