Scottish Tartans World Register: MacKenzie 
MacKenzie Clan Tartan  WR267



The MacKenzie is the regimental tartan of the Seaforth Highlanders, who were raised by MacKenzie, Earl of Seaforth, in 1778. The clan held lands in Ross-shire and around Muir of Ord, but in the 12th century, they were removed to Wester Ross, (Kintail). The chiefly line of Kintail died out (as prophesised by the Brahan Seer) and the MacKenzies of Cromarty were recognised as Chiefs of the Clan. Wilson's 1819 pattern book records various widths and weights of cloth suitable for the different ranks in the regiment.
The source of tartan 267 was: Wilson's of Bannockburn '1819'
