Scottish Tartans World Register: MacNab 
MacNab Clan Tartan  WR857



The structure of the MacNab is identical with that of the Black Watch; but, by a translation of colours, the most subdued of tartans becomes one of the most striking. D.C.Stewart suggests looking at the pattern through a green filter to see the effect. James Logan recorded this pattern in his book, 'The Scottish Gael' in 1831, despite receiving a different sett from the largest weaving company of the time, William Wilson and Company, Bannockburn. Wilson's MacNab survives as an alternative tartan for the clan.
The source of tartan 857 was: Logan (1831)
