Scottish Tartans World Register: Fraser  
Fraser Hunting Clan Tartan  WR1659



In the Hunting Fraser, brown replaces the red of the Clan sett. The late Charles Ian Fraser of Reeling said, in his publication, "Clan Fraser", that this sett was designed by the Sobieski Stuart brothers at the request of Lord Lovat for use by the Inverness and Nairn militia. A letter to Lord Lovat from the War Office, c.1855, authorised the use of the Fraser tartan for the corps. D. C. Stewart suggests that the tartan is of more recent origin.
The source of tartan 1659 was: W & A K Johnston
