Tartan Details - Scott

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

STA ref: 1005
STWR ref: 1005
Designer: Sobieski Stewarts, The
Tartan date: 01/01/1829
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Registration notes: This is the most popular Scott tartan in modern times. Earliest reference possibly 1829 in a letter from Sir Thomas Dick Lauder to Sir Walter Scott in which he tells Scott that he had seen this tartan in a manuscript prepared for the brothers John Sobieski and Charles Edward Stuart. Scott rejected the idea very firmly. Jamie Scarlett MBE pointed out (April 2006) that it was interesting that the tartan for Rob Roy MacGregor's greatest publicist - Scott seemed to owe its origins to the Clan Gregor tartan of 1819.

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.
