The simple answer is, if you like it wear it but bear in mind that there are other tartans associatd with Clan Donald that have a greater antiquity. Bottom line, there are no tartan police and no-one will get upset if you choose to wear this tartan.
Great! Thank you for all the information and your own perspective. With so many tartan choices, it can be hard to sort through them and find out what’s what, especially as an American who grew up outside of the tartan tradition.
