Scottish Tartans World Register: Malcolm 
Malcolm Clan Tartan  WR1976



There is an error in D.C.Stewarts, 'The Setts..' (1950 1st Edition) corrected in the 2nd edition (1974). The name Malcolm was established, as distinct from MacCallum, in 1770 when the 9th Chief of Poltalloch changed the family name to Malcolm. This may well be the sett on which the MacCallum was based "from the recollection of old people in Argyllshire" and which D.W. Stewart illustrated in silk in his book, 'Old and Rare..'. Wilson's of Bannockburn produced a symmetrical version of the Malcolm tartan.
The source of tartan 1976 was: W. and A. Smith, 1850
