Nicholson Red Ancient

Surcharge
Select this tartan
  • Mill: Loch
  • Weight: 16 oz.
  • Known Septs Include: Alternate names include: Nicolson, MacNicol
  • Notes:

    This is the version most commonly woven today. 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, which accounts for some variety of  interpretation by weavers. The usual threadcount 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.
