Nicolson/MacNichol (Clan)
  • Notes: This is the version woven by the major weavers and the count is extremely close to that given in 'The Highlander' in 1876 - source J.G.Mackay. The earliest documented evidence of a Nicolson or MacNicol tartan is the drawing by McIan of a woman wearing a tartan shawl (1845-7). The illustrated tartan is not consistent and various interpretations are possible. The threadcount used here is taken from a sample in the Scottish Tartans Society collection which is similar but not identical to the count recorded by D.C. Stewart (1950). The four by four red squares can be seen in tartans associated with the MacLeods. See MacNicol.
