Scottish Tartans World Register: MacLean of Duart 
MacLean of Duart Clan Tartan  WR2125



The pattern is recorded by W and A Smith in 1850 and by Grant in 1886. Logan (1831) gives a variation with a single azure stripe, but the earlier sample in the Cockburn Collection (1810-15) indicates that in this instance, Logan was wrong. There is a curious mathematical similarity with the Royal Stewart tartan in which the number of threads and the colours have been reversed. It suggests a common origin in design but no explanation can be given.
The source of tartan 2125 was: Cockburn Collection No 46
