Scottish Tartans World Register: MacColl 
MacColl Clan Tartan  WR878



The MacColl tartan was produced by Wilson's of Bannockburn in 1797 under the name of 'Bruce' later known as 'Old Bruce'. Some historical detective work is required to establish the earliest date for the MacColl tartan. The MacColls are a branch of the Clan Donald who settled around Loch Fyne. Some of the clan living in the Ballachulich area took protection from the Stewart of Appin. There is a strong similarity in the pattern structure of the 'Appin' and the MacColl design.
The source of tartan 878 was: Wilson's of Bannockburn
