MacDonald of Clanranald - 1819 (Clan
  • Notes: This is based on the the count entered into Lord Lyon's records on 11th October 1946. (B/12 R4 B4 R6 B24 R4 K22 W4 G22 R6 G4 R4 G/12). Another count (G/32 R4 G8 R12 G48 W4 K22 R4 B48 R6 B4 R4 B/32) differs appreciably in proportions from that count (with no reason given) and gives a much finer sett albeit a huge one of about 12 inches. . There is a certified example in the Highland Society of London collection which - confusingly - is different from this entry! The Smiths in their 1850 publication had this to say: "The MacDonell of Glengarry differs very litle from the Clanranald, and we had some little difficulty in ascertaining the respective Tartans of each family; but at last we obtained a specimen from a gentleman who had it from Miss MacDonell of Glengarry, which removed the doubts, and enabled us to assign to each its proper Tartan."
