Scottish Tartans World Register: MacDonald of the Isles 
MacDonald of the Isles Clan Tartan  WR1366



The design first appeared in the Vestiarium Scoticum and is different from earlier setts attributed to the Lord of the Isles or to any of the Clan Donald branches. It is not generally regarded as a clan tartan. The Sobieski Stuart brothers who published the Vestiarium claimed to be the heirs to a manuscript once in the hands of Prince Charles Edward himself but the original was never produced for public examination. The book appears to be a curious mixture of fact and fiction in keeping with the romantic ideology.
The source of tartan 1366 was: Vestiarium Scoticum
