  • Notes: Tartan Society records show #312 which is the MacGregor Hastie version but it is so close to this sett that it is not included here. James Cant notes state: "This clan had no hunting tartan of its own until about 1730. At that time many of the Cadets of the Clan were officers in the Black Watch and they adopted the tartan of the Watch as their Hunting Tartan". As Jamie Scarlett MBE pointed out in 1997, Wilsons of Bannockburn were not above recycling tartans that had outlived their useful life or cannibalising ones that were still in use. If you remove the black lines from the blue, the tartan is transformed into a popular fashion tartan - the Regent. Ignore the fact that one is blue and the other purple. Wilson's purple was what we would now call dark blue. Sample in STA's Scarlett Collection.
