Scottish Tartans World Register: MacLeod Red 
MacLeod Red Clan Tartan  WR496



Designed after the tartan worn by Norman MacLeod, 22nd Chief of the clan, painted by Allan Ramsay in 1747, with the costume painted by Van Haecken (see details in entry for MacLeod 'Portrait'.) A yellow stripe was added by Ruairidh MacLeod to enhance the family resemblance to other MacLeod tartans, and to differentiate this from Murray of Tullibardine, the name now attached to the sett in the portrait. Approved by the Clan MacLeod Parliament in 1982.
The source of tartan 496 was: Dgn. Ruairidh MacLeod MSTS
