    From the Cockburn Collection (No. 13). Also known as Atholl District Tartan. James Logan suggested that the tartan derived from the Black Watch and that Lord Murray, who commanded the regiment, introduced the red lines..."William and Andrew Smith in 1850 say: "The genuineness of our specimen...is confirmed by the description which Colonol Stewart gives of the philibeg of the 42nd, when that regiment was first embodied, He says" Lord George Murray gave the Atholl Tartan for the philibeg: the difference was only a stripe of scarlet to distinguish it from the belted plaid."

    This tartan dates to 1831.
