Tartan Details - Culloden

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

STA ref: 1328
STWR ref: 1328
Designer: Not Specified
Tartan date: 01/01/1746
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: District
Registration notes: This seems to be the sett which spawned a series of similar tartans with their design variously ascribed to Hugh Macpherson, Laird-Portch and Thomas Gordon of Glasgow. Worn by a member of Prince Charles' staff during the battle but it is not known with which family or district it was first connected. It was first illustrated in Old & Rare in 1893 by D.W. Stewart whose son D.C. Stewart was a founder member of the Scottish Tartans Society. According to Dr Gordon Teall (District Tartans) it is now firmly established as a district tartan and 'use and wont' would appear to confirm that - this is the sett woven by Lochcarron & House of Edgar.

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.
