Scottish Tartans World Register: Stuart / Stewart of Bute  
Stuart / Stewart of Bute Clan Tartan  WR1485



The use of this tartan is normally considered to be confined to the family from whom it derives its title, though others more or less closely related have likewise claimed an interest. Whether or not the pattern was in use before the publication of the Vestiarium Scoticum, has never been ascertained. It is often seen in maroon but the change from red does not have the approval of the Marquis of Bute. Stuarts of Bute are descended from the natural son of King Robert II. The 'hunting' version is the same sett but using a moroon shade as opposed to red / scaerlet
The source of tartan 1485 was: Vestiarium Scoticum
