|This sett is taken from a sample in the Scottish
Tartans Society collection. It is a more compact form of the sett
designed for Lord Kilmarnock in 1956 and registered with the Lord
Lyon. The Lordship of Boyd was created in 1454. The family has a long
association with the town of Kilmarnock and the castle of Dean, in
the South West of Scotland. Thomas Boyd was created Earl of Arran
in 1467. The tartan is based on the Hay and the Stuart of Bute tartans.
