Registration notes: Samples in Scottish Tartans Authority Dalgety Collection. Woven sample in Clans Originaux labelled 'Cranston'. VS described it as including two greens ' . . . that of a leaf of a tender ash tree, and the other the colour of grass.' This graphic very close to the Lochcarron colours. Woven sample. References: The Setts No: 35. W & A K Johnston, 1906. D.C Stewart (The Setts of the Scottish Tartans, 1950) would have the light green and dark green transposed but this does not correspond to the Vestiarium Scoticum, a collection put together between 1829-1842 , the only known source for the tartan. The VS version is shown.
