MacKay - 1800 (Clan)
  • Notes: Wilson's of Bannockburn (1819) record the same sett with blue changed to purple. Logan calls the colour 'corbeau' which is in fact a dark shade of green. The pattern shows a marked similarity to the Gunn tartan in all but colour, suggesting a territorial origin for both. Recently historians of Scottish dress have tended to stress the geographical sources, rather than the clan associations of the earliest Highland tartans. A sample was signed and sealed by the Chief for Highland Society of London in 1816. The sett is known as the 'Green' Mackay. The source of tartan 703 was: Logan (1831) Woven sample.
