Scottish Tartans World Register: MacKirdy 
MacKirdy Family Tartan  WR1092



This sample comes from the MacGregor-Hastie collection which forms the basis of the cloth archive of the Scottish Tartans Society. MacGregor-Hastie noted, "A pattern seen at Andersons, Edinburgh, was labelled 'MacKirdy'. It is a simple green tartan. The family are usually given as a sept of the Stuarts of Bute. The tartan is modern". One can assume that the sample dates between 1930 and 1950. At a very early period the larger part of the Island of Bute belonged to the Mackuerdys, which was leased to them by King James 1V of Scotland.
The source of tartan 1092 was: Messrs Andersons, Edinburgh
