Scottish Tartans World Register: Baillie 
Baillie Clan Tartan  WR278



The pattern books of the old firm of weavers, Wilson's of Bannockburn, provide a definitive source for the Baillie tartan. Wilson's were in business with a monopoly to supply tartan to the regiments. Wilson supplied the MacLeods, the MacKenzies and the Campbells with variations of the basic 'Black Watch' regimental sett. The Fencibles regiments were formed as a 'home guard' at the time of the Napoleonic Wars. Baillies Fencibles were disbanded in 1802 and it has been suggested that it was the white stripe.
The source of tartan 278 was: Wilson's pattern book 1819
