Registration notes: 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. Later notes on this tartan then state: 'This is said to be the trade version of Cochrane but it is in fact recorded as the clan tartan in the Lord Lyon Book LCB 52 dated 12th November 1984. Scottish Tartans Society notes say: 'Lord Dundonald originally registered a version missing a red and a green stripe with Lord Lyon in 1974 (see No.977). There is a story that a fragment of this design was discovered in the foundations of a Perthshire house around the 1930's, thought to be of greater authenticity. However, other reports suggest that the missing stripes were simply a typing error. The sett is based on the old Lochaber district tartan which also provided a base for the MacDonald and the Cameron of Erracht. (All of which have four red stripes)' Resume: Lord Dundonald changed the count in 1974 and reduced the red and green lines from four to three. The current Chief does not recommend its use.
