Scottish Tartans World Register: MacKay 
MacKay Clan Tartan  WR264



The design comes from the Vestiarium Scoticum (1842). The authors, the Sobieski Stuart brothers, enjoyed a popular following among the Scottish gentry in the early Victorian era, and in the spirit of the times, added mystery, romance and some spurious historical documentation to the subject of tartan. Of the better known tartans, the book offers some minor variation, but in other cases it provides the only recorded version of many tartans in use today. This sett is often called the 'Blue' MacKay.
The source of tartan 264 was: Vestiarium Scoticum No: 35
