Campbell of Breadalbane (Clan)
  • Notes: The official Campbell of Breadalbane tartan. First appeared as Wilson's No.64 in 1819 and became 'Breadalbane' in the Cockburn Collection and the Scott Adie pattern book of around 1850, then Campbell of Breadalbane in Smiths' 1850 Authentic Tartans of the Clans and Families of Scotland. DC Stewart's Sindex card says this pattern was supplied to the Smiths by the Marquis of Breadalbane but that it was a spurious trade tartan known as a 'Fancy'. Also appears in the 1880 Clans Originaux. Sample in STA Collection. Lochcarron swatch. See also #1047 MacKay. Wilson's of Bannockburn produced this pattern, the No. 64 or 'Abercrombie' in a variety of colours. (See Graham, MacCallum, Rollo.) Old pattern book from Killin states that it was copied from an old plaid in the posession of the Captain of Dunstaffnage at Dunstfanage which is known to date about to 1750"
