MacRae of Conchra - 1893 (Clan)
  • Notes: Major John MacRae-Gilstrap of Otter Ferry furnished the following in 1904 re this tartan. "When my great-great-grandfather, John MacRae of Conchra, Lochalsh, was on his way to Sherrifmuir from Kintail, some of his followers being without stockings, the occupants of a shieling in which some of them lodged, spent the night in cutting out stockings for them from a web of cloth which they had in the place. A piece of this web was in the possession of my grand-aunt Miss Flora MacRa (sic) of Ardintoul, from which she knitted the accompanying hose when a girl at the turn of the last century." (1880s) "Unfortunately the original piece of cloth has been lost." Conchra is a tiny village 9 miles (14km) due east of Kyle of Lochalsh in the Scottish Highlands. Sample in STA Collection.
