MacBean of Tomatin (Clan)
  • Notes: This is MacKintosh with a blue line centered on red ground. originally thought to be a black line (see #3343) A subsequently discovered specimen revealed it was actually blue and this is as woven in Peter E. MacDonald swatch, 1944. James Scarlett in his text says "the blue was probably purple". Same as MacFadyen (#403). 'Tartans' (Johnston/Smith 1999) calls this 'MacBean of Tomatin'. 2014. Sinclair/Brown Scrapbook note: "with black line . . . worn by the MacBean Chief at the end of the 19th century." The MacFadzean/MacFadyan connection comes from MacGregor Hastie and it's reported but unsubstantiated, that this was worn at Battle of Culloden.
