Tartan Details - Grant of Auchnarrow

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

STA ref: 1844
STWR ref: 1844
Designer: Unknown
Tartan date: 01/01/1954
Registration date: This tartan was recorded prior to the launch of The Scottish Register of Tartans.
Category: Other
Registration notes: Count taken from a tartan plaid donated in 1954 to the founder of the Highland Folk Museum, Dr Isabel Frances Grant MBE, LLD, by a Miss Peace, said to be a descendant of 'a Strathspey tacksman' who held the farm of Auchnarrow. Originally designated 'Grant of Achnarrow', the reference is almost certainly a mis-spelling of Auchnarrow, a property near Castle Grant, north-east of Grantown-on-Spey. Auchnarrow was held in the 16th century by the Clann Chiaran sept of Clan Grant. The sett was confirmed by photographic evidence of the plaid at the Highland Folk Museum in September 2012.

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.
