  • Notes: The following is from an 1860 manuscript written by a Charles Andrew McHardy who was the Chief Constable of Dumbarton and an historian. "The McHardy Tartan, for Kilting and Plaiding, according to coloured thread scale is as follows:-Warp, 6 red; 58 green; 58 blue; 4 white; 58 blue; 6 red; 6 green; 6 red; 58 blue; 4 white; 58 blue; 58 green; 6 red; 6 blue; 6 red; 58 green; 58 blue; 4 white; 58 blue; 6 red; 6 green; 6 red; 58 blue; 4 white; 58 blue; 58 green; 6 red; 6 blue; 6 red &c. The ordinary width of a web of tartan is about two feet two inches, and if made of double width the sets, as above, are to be repeated until the full width be obtained. The threads in the Woof must correspond with those in the Warp, and if this be attended to the sets and checks will be correct. Sample in STA Johnston Collection. The structure of the Culloden tartan is very similar to this and Coulsen Bonner calls it Culloden or Ancient MacHardy. The possibility therefore arises that the Culloden - which was an unknown tartan found at Culloden - might have been an early form of MacHardy.
