MacRae Htg - 1820 (Wilsons)
  • Notes: Wilson specimen in Smith Institute, Stirling. This pattern is of similar structure to the Black Watch & MacKenzie and differs from the latter least; blue and green have become transposed and the twin lines nearest the edge of the green ground have changed from black to crimson. It is understandable that a MacRae tartan might show a similarity to a MacKenzie - generations of them acted as MacKenzie's 'shirt of mail' guarding for them their castle of Eilan Donan and taking part in most of their conflicts. The similarity, however, could be be coincidental. The major weavers seem to use this when they produce MacRae Htg in old or muted colours but when the produce it in modern colours they all delete the black guards on the white!
