MACINNES HUNTING (ANCIENT)

The Scottish Tartans Society notes for this tartan attribute the design to the 'Onich Grocer' with no further explanation. Further research by Alasdair 'MacInnes' Campbell of Fort William has identified John MacInnes of Onich, who was born around 1851 and was Registrar for Ballachulish and Corran of Ardgour 1874-1920. John MacInnes was also a tailor and weaver and ran a general merchant store from the same premises as his Registry Office. It is said that when King Edward VII was the Prince of Wales he called at John's 'Nether Lochaber Stores' to have an outfit made. It is said that the royal patronage went to John's head - to the disdain of his neighbours.
