|Scottish Tartans World Register: Nicolson
|Nicolson Clan Tartan WR498
|The earliest documented evidence of a Nicolson or
MacNicol tartan is the drawing by McIan of a woman
wearing a tartan shawl (1845-7). The illustrated tartan is
not consistant and various interpretations are possible.
The threadcount used here is taken from a sample in the
Scottish Tartans Society collection which is similar but
not identical to the count recorded by D.C. Stewart (1950).
The four by four red squares can be seen in tartans
associated with the MacLeods. See MacNicol.
