|This is oldest recorded version of the Clan sett. It varies
slightly from those recorded by Logan, Smibert, Grant etc.,
but the motif is the same throughout. Of the nine
independent branches of the Clan Donald, there are at
least 27 different setts. It was not until 1947 that the
MacDonalds again had a high chief, MacDhomnuill, who
by tradition has the final word on the tartans of the clan.
That right was granted to Alexander MacDonald of
MacDonald whose son Godfrey is now the 8th Chief.
