    Peter, this is SO cool! It is a wonderful tartan and that is a gorgeous herringbone selvege. It reminds me a bit of the Fraser of Struy with the colours and stripes. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. You really are adding so much to our knowledge of this amazing history.

    Best,
    Adam

    Glad it staying in country, and didn't just go to a personal collection.

    Had read the Joined Plaids.....The selvage.piece was most interesting. thank you.

    I joined the Tartan register just to get a thread count for this tartan...not sure why I like it so much. My tastes tend to wander towards the hunting colors.

    There are several entries for this tartan recorded by the SRT, such as this one. Uunfortunately none of them are correct. For a detailed dicussion of the origianl and subsequent copies see this paper.
