MACTAVISH OF DUNARDRY DRESS

DESCRIPTION

This is a 'new' MacTavish Clan tartan, re-creating the Dunardry tartan known to Isobel, daughter of MacLachlan of that Ilk, paternal grandmother to Sheriff Dugald MacTavish of Dunardry. Evidence for the existence of this design can be found in a letter from Sheriff Dugald MacTavish at Kilchrist to John MacTavish, 18 February 1845, the original of which is held in the National Archives of Canada. The letter describes a tartan that ‘should have as much white as there was yellow in the MacLachlans tartan’. The registration of this Clan tartan has been approved by the current Clan Chief.
