Munro (Clan)
  • Notes: This was manufactured by Wilsons of Bannockburn as 'Lochiel Tartan' (that is Cameron of Lochiel) and how it became a Munro tartan is a mystery. Despite that, this sett is usually regarded as the correct form of the Munro tartan. It is illustrated by Smibert and the Smith brothers (both works published in 1850). In early versions (as shown here) bright pink replaces the crimson between the three green lines. Munros wear the 'Black Watch' as a Hunting tartan. In their 1850 book "The Clan and Family Tartans of Scotland" William and Andrew Smith of Mauchline wrote: "We give the pattern which has been longest known by the Manufacturers as 'The Monro Tartan' " Similar to Stirling Weavers' Guild (#936) Sample in STA Dalgety Collection in which the blue bands are black. Lochcarron sample they are blue as shown here.
