    If that line is yellow, Cameron of Erracht. If the line is white I have no idea.

    The line looks white in which case it is probably a trade error. Some years ago I recall such a tartan being submitted to the STA for recording (pre the existance of the SRT) but it was rejected as likely to be confused with Cameron of Erracht.

    So what I am think I am hearing is the Tartan shown really is not related to a CLAN, but more of a fashion or general commercial Tartan?

    I'm pretty such that I've also come across this mis-sold as MacDonnell of Glengarry. Whether it as deliberate or a weaving error (white in the wrong square) I cannot say.

    Don't say things like that. The next thing we'll hear is that there is such a clan and that this is their long lost tartan. 😞
