The Chief's Tartan

Such a tartan is considered to be the personal tartan, worn only by the Chief and his immediate family. It is considered poor taste for a clansman to wear his chief's personal tartan unless, as in the case of the Davidsons, there is no chief or, where the chief has sanctioned for its general or specific use.

An example of such a tartan is the Robertson of Struan, which is the Red Robertson design but with white within the tramline.
