Tartan Details - Glenalmond College

The information held within The Scottish Register of Tartans for the "Glenalmond College" tartan is shown below. 

STA ref: 6123
STWR ref: none
Designer: Not Specified
Tartan date: 01/01/1936
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Corporate
Registration notes: From 1936 this modified version of Murray of Atholl was used by Glenalmond College in Perthshire (a private sector school) as its school uniform and for its pipe band. The difference between this and the Murray of Atholl (#281, original Scottish Tartans Authority reference) is that the red line on the blue band is missing its black guards and the green and blue are lighter than the conventional Murray tartan. There are however some kilts and plaids at Blair Castle (ancestral home of the Dukes of Atholl) with the lighter colours although the modern weaves are dark. The green in this graphic is too light. Sample in Scottish Tartans Authority's Lindley Collection.

Please note

Where tartans were recorded before the establishment of the Scottish Register of Tartans (SRT) on 5 February 2009, the original Scottish Tartans Authority (STA) and the Scottish Tartans World Register (STWR) reference numbers have been retained. The new SRT reference number can be found in the address box on your browser (url).

The registration criteria now applied by the Register conforms to the Scottish Register of Tartans Act 2008. These criteria are different to those previously applied by either the STA or the STWR. You may wish to refer to the STA website for further information.
