Scottish Tartans. / Writings · 23 February 2024

Scottish Tartans. House of Stewart.

Another “royal” tartan of the House of Stuart/Stewart. It was referred to by George V as “my personal tartan”, though it appeared in the Vestiarium Scoticum at least 23 years before his birth. While the work’s historical claims have been shown to be spurious, it described the design as the “clanne Stewart tartan”, and the work was popular, so the tartan would have been familiar before George’s birth in 1865. It is worn officially today by the regimental pipers of the Scots Guards, and remains in common civilian use as a Stewart/Stuart clan tartan.
