  • Notes: This is recorded by Gordon Teall in' District Tartans' but no background is given to its choice as the Mull district tartan. Writing in 1996, Peter MacDonald said that in recent years this pattern has been promoted as the Glenlyon District Tartan although it is clear it started life as a Fancy Pattern. This tartan is specifically mentioned by Telford Dunbar in his 1962 'History of Highland Dress' (Page149) when he included it in a list of William Wilson's tartans that were most popular in 1822.
