|Scottish Tartans World Register: Maclaine of Lochbuie
|MacLaine of Lochbuie Clan Tartan WR1462
|A sample of this distinctive and ancient tartan exists in the
Cockburn Collection in the Mitchell Library in Glasgow
dating before 1810 when the collection was made. It was
first published by Grant in 1886. The MacLaines of
Lochbuie challenged the right of chiefship for the Clan
MacLean. The matter was settled by 'tanistry' and Duart
was recognised as chief, even though Eachin Reganach was
in fact the elder brother of Lachlan, the first chief of the
MacLeans of Duart.
