Tartan Details - Coigach

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

STA ref: 6570
STWR ref: none
Designer: Wilton, Brian
Tartan date: 01/01/2005
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: District
Registration notes: The Coigach District tartan incorporates elements from the Coigach Estate Tweed of 1846 and three of the clan tartans associated with the area - the Mackenzie of 1819, the Macleod of Lewis of 1829 and the Ross of 1819. The dominant design feature is the rust, white and black check of the estate tweed (universally known as the Gun Club tweed) which is here set against a backdrop of the blue and green bands of the MacKenzie tartan. The MacLeod of Lewis connection is represented by the yellow and black and the Ross by the blue, green and red. The five black lines on the green represent Coigach - the Gaelic for fifth, which refers to the area being one fifth of the Earl of Cromarty's land holding. Coigach is pronounced 'Coo-yach'.

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.
