Cochrane Clan Tartans

The Cochrane tartan is said to have come from a portrait, however in 1974 the 14th Earl of Dundonald used his prerogative as Chief to vary the design so as to reduce the groups of four red lines to three.  Then in 1984, the 15th Earl of Dundonald had the sett changed back to the original groups of four red lines. The tartan sett is based on the old Lochaber district  which also provided a base for the MacDonald and the Cameron of Erracht.

The term 'ancient' refers to the dye shades, normally lighter, whereas 'modern' refers to darker colours.
