    I'm sorry the pic isn't that good. I took the pic with my camera phone. My digital camera is trashed. The tartan doesn't show up well in that pic. It is the Baird Modern tartan.

    We actually have two. The elements are all the same, but the one on the left references the family Phabbay (which I've seen spelled several different ways) as a sign of loyalty and appreciation for support offered the clan. The one on the right references the ancient stronghold of the Clan Morrison .


    Clan Morrison originated in the Outer Hebridies and as such was never a rich clan like some of the big mainland clans (though the McLeods did well for themselves). Accordingly, they don't have a myriad of tartans and such like.

    Regards,
    Scott Gilmore

    This is the Baird Modern tartan.

    The Ancient Baird tartan is much lighter in color.
