Tartan Details - Campbell of Argyll (no guards)

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Campbell of Argyll (no guards)" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 7157
STWR ref: none
Designer: Lochcarron
Tartan date: 01/01/1822
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Clan/Family
Registration notes: This version without the black guards on the white and yellow is produced by Lochcarron of Scotland (in Modern, Ancient & Weathered colours). The Chief of Clan Campbell has this to say regarding any tartan called Campbell of Argyll: 'Let me get rid, once and for all, of the thought that there is a 'Campbell of Argyll' [tartan]. While it is true that the Sixth Duke [of Argyll] introduced a white line to his plain Campbell tartan to differentiate himself from the rest of the Campbells, (he being the chief and entitled to do so), he was the only member of the family so to do and the rest of the family thought he was rather pompous to do it.' Despite this, the tartan is still produced and sold by weavers so it would appear that 'Campbell of Argyll' is here to stay.

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.
