A sample of this tartan can be seen in the Cockburn Collection (1810-20) in the Mitchell library in Glasgow. MacGregor is one of the patterns labelled in 1815 in General Cockburn's hand writing. The same pattern is recorded by Wilson in the Key pattern book dating 1819 under the name 'MacGregor Murray Tartan'. Logan (1831) calls it simply 'MacGregor'. There is also a certified MacGregor tartan (for undress) called 'Rob Roy', a simple red and black check.
It is sometimes call 'MacGregor hunting' when produced in a Burgandy shade.
