  • Notes: Tartan Society note say that this is the sett that appears in the Vestiarium Scoticum as Mackintosh. There is no historical connection between the names to explain the position and it is interesting to note the similarity with the Dunbar tartan (where the white stripes are black) which also originates in the Vestiarium. The Nisbets came from the old barony of Nisbet in the parish of Edrom, Berwickshire, as early as 1160. Details from R.C.Nesbitt's 'Nisbet of that Ilk', 1941. Sample from Angela Nisbett in STA Johnston Collection.
