Registration notes: The Wisharts of Pittarrow and Logie Wishart were a lowland family dating from around the 12th Century. The family's origins are unknown, but the name Guiscard, Wiscard, Wishart, meaning 'cunning' is Norman-French. We have also sought to associate the Wishart tartan with that of another family by virtue of the marriage of a Sir John Wishart to Jean, daughter of William Douglas, 9th Earl of Angus in the 16th Century. The Wishart tartan combines the Wallace and Douglas tartans in an original new 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 on the original recording of this tartan.
