|Wilson's of Bannockburn (1819) record the same sett with
blue changed to purple. Logan calls the colour 'corbeau'
which is in fact a dark shade of green. The pattern shows a
marked similarity to the Gunn tartan in all but colour,
suggesting a territorial origin for both. Recently
historians of Scottish dress have tended to stress the
geographical sources, rather than the clan associations of
the earliest Highland tartans. A sample was signed and
sealed by the Chief for Highland Society of London in
The sett is known as the 'Green' Mackay.
