Scottish Tartans World Register: Moncreiffe 
Moncreiffe (MacLachlan) Clan Tartan  WR963



Sir Iain Moncreiffe of that Ilk, acquired the MacLachlan old sett for the clan in 1974. As a result of a long association with Clan Murray, the Moncreiffes traditionally wore the Atholl tartan. Sir Iain... arranged that Madam MacLachlan of MacLachlan assign to him this simple pattern of red and green which was no longer favoured by Clan MacLachlan but was in Wilsons of Bannockburns pattern book 1790. Sir Iain felt the sett was appropriate to the long history of the clan and the colours represented the colour of his arms. It has also be called Robin Hood.
The source of tartan 963 was: Wilson's of Bannockburn.
