Tartan Details - Scrymgeour

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

STA ref: 1627
STWR ref: 1627
Designer: Mann, Trudi
Tartan date: 01/01/1971
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Registration notes: Hereditary Standard Bearers of Scotland. Originally designed in 1971 by Trudi Mann and vetted by D.C. Stewart, author of 'The Setts of the Scottish Tartans'. Trudi tells of attending the 1971 Gathering of the Clans and having a discussion with Sir Ian Moncrieffe. His wife - a Scrymgeour was wearing an attractive checked blouse and her father said he would like a tartan designed to include those colours. The finished tartan was apparently displayed at a gathering of Scrymgeours held at Dudhope Castle, Dundee, in 1971/2 and was later adopted as the official tartan. Sample in Scottish Tartans Authority's Johnston Collection. See also Scrimgeour of Glassary. Sindex notes say: Designed by D.C. Stewart in 1971 but not adopted. 'It would appear to have been adopted by 1977 as many members of the Clan Society were wearing it at the 1977 International Gathering of the Clans in Edinburgh. In fact, the Society stall was very heavily draped in the said material.' (A.G. Murray, 1987). D.C. Stewart passed this count to Life member Andrew Pearson back in October 1971.

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.
