MacAlister of Glenbarr Htg (Clan)
  • Notes: Threadcount taken from swatches supplied by Angus Charles Macalister, 5th Laird of Glenbarr. May 1989. This detail from a letter to Ruaraidh MacLeod from Eugene Planck of Colorado (and TECA) dated 28th june 1989."Glenbarr writes: 'we believe to be a unique color for a tartan which while being very suitable for hunting purposes has had a rather love-hate relationbship with the clan. Rory Macleod of the tartan museum in Comrie has suggested a very light tan/fawn color as perhaps a more acceptable substitute.' This statement indicates the colors are not definitely determined and may change at the next weaving." Sample in STA Johnston Collection. This version of the MacAlister of Glenbarr tartan is the same as the MacGillivray hunting tartan. This sample was taken from a piece woven by Lochcarron Weavers around 1984..
