SUTHERLAND OLD (WEATHERED)

This tartan sett is found in the 1840 book, the 'Vestiarium Scoticum'. The foundation resembles the Black Watch with red and white lines superimposed (Jamie Scarlett MBE). Scottish Tartans Society notes for this tartan don't exactly make sense. 'The earlier date refers to a letter from Gordon Earl of Sutherland instructing Murray of Dulrossie to 'remove the red and white lines from the plaids of the men so as to bring their dress into harmony with that of the other Septs.' (*Consider the 'District' version that shows this correction). This sett with red and white is also recorded by Smibert in 1850. Smibert's work lends greater authority to the accuracy of the tartan.'
