Scottish Tartans World Register: Caledonia No. 155 
Caledonia No. 155 Universal Tartan  WR1356



Popular in the eighteenth century and appears in a number of guises. Romantic stories are told of its origin but in reality little is known. (G.Teall). J. Scarlett asserts that Wilson's No 155 has never been named, and that Miss Margaret MacDougall was in error when she included it in Robert Bain's 'Clans and Tartans of Scotland' (1953) as Caledonia. It is included here because of its obvious family resemblance to other Caledonia setts.
The source of tartan 1356 was: Wilson's of Bannockburn.
