Scottish Tartans World Register: MacOrrell 
MacOrrell Family Tartan  WR672



The MacOrrell tartan has similarities with the MacDonald, Lord of the Isles sett, which may point a connection with the name MacDonnell or MacDonald. The name Orr was used by a sept of the MacGregors and also of the Campbells of Argyll, suggesting that the root of the name originated in the Lochaber and Argyll districts. There is an undated sample of the tartan in the cloth archive of the Scottish Tartans Society.
The source of tartan 672 was: The Scottish Tartans Society
