Chisholm


This is without doubt the oldest of the Chisholm tartans, dating from around 1800 and which appears in a portrait of the clan heroine 'Mary Chisholm' of about that date. She was famous for having sided with the clansmen during the clearances. D.C.Stewart says it is a variation of one of the MacIntosh setts, said to have been found in a cave at Achnacarry in 1746.
