|Scottish Tartans World Register: Matheson
|Matheson Clan Tartan WR860
|The design usually worn by Mathesons is given by Smith
although earlier versions are recorded. McIan's drawing
could be taken to represent either of the two red designs of
which this is one. The Mathesons were involved with other
clans who settled in Lochalsh, and in particular with the
MacDonells of Glengarry and the MacKenzies of Kintail.
The tartan has a design structure which relates to the
Glengarry which dates at least to c.1816 when a sample
was certified by the chief.
|The source of tartan 860 was: Smith No 67.
