Registration notes: The 'Brown' refers to the brown band between the green and azure. In #428, (original Scottish Tartans Authority reference) it is blue. MacGregor Hastie Collection. Scottish Tartans Society notes: There is extensive correspondence about the use of the terms 'ancient' and 'hunting' in relation to this sett in the Stewart files at the Scottish Tartan Society. The use of brown makes this sett proportionately similar to the count recorded by James Scarlett as early nineteenth century. He says that the brown was probably black originally. (No.417, The Highland Textile, 1990). Colours from Kilbarchan samples ramge from Balmoral blue to med blue.

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.
