  • Notes: The Taylor tartan was designed in 1955 by two outstanding authorities on tartans: Miss Margaret MacDougall, of the Inverness Museum, and Lt.Col I.B. Cameron Taylor. The double black lines in the tartan are said to represent the Black Tailor and his bar sinister. Extensive STS notes on this one: some similarity to the Cameron of Lochiel Hunting (1535) as recorded in the Vestiarium Scoticum which may be connected with the designer, or to the Clan Cameron warrior Taillear dubh na Tuaighe (Black Taylor of the Axe) who lived in the 17th century. The tartan is recognised by the Cameron of Lochiel. Sample in STA Dalgety Collection. Second sample has grey in place of blue.
