    Now I get it

    Okay, now I understand. The tartan in my original post is Grant (Wilson's 1819 Key Pattern Book,) not Grant Hunting. Grant (Wilson's 1819 Key Pattern Book,) has the "double tracks" I spoke of, MacLaren does not. MacLaren is not a simplified Grant (Wilson's 1819 Key Pattern Book,) because they both appeared at the same time. Grant and Grant Hunting, (AKA Black Watch) are different setts all together. Got it!
    Thank you,
