Waverley Scotland Genuine Tartan Cloth Commonplace Notebook – MacDuff Modern HuntingWaverley Scotland Genuine Tartan Cloth Commonplace Notebook – MacDuff Modern HuntingOur price: £9.99ViewThe Macduff Modern Hunting tartan’s blue glows out against a background of dark browns and hints of green, shot through with bold reds.Before the clan system was fully recognised, the MacDuff Earls of Fife were the greatest family in Scotland. MacDuff, 1st Earl of Fife, was held to be the Earl of Fife who opposed Macbeth (1040–1057) and assisted Malcolm to the throne of Scotland. The centre of MacDuff power was the kingdom of Fife, and they held extensive lands in the northeast and in the Lowlands. The MacDuffs held the ancient privilege of crowning the kings of Scotland on the ancient Stone of Scone, the right to bear the red lion rampant of the royal house, and the right to lead the front rank of the Scottish army. They could also claim the right of reprieve for the crime of murder, for a modest payment, or the right of sanctuary at the Cross of MacDuff near Newburgh, Fife.Clan Duff claims to be of the original Royal Scoto-Pictish line. The line ended in 1353 with the death of Duncan IV, and the Earldom of Fife was passed to the House of Stewart in 1371. In 1759 the earldom of Fife returned to the Duff family when William Duff, Lord Braco (1697–1763) received the title Earl Fife in the Peerage of Ireland. In 1733 he bought a settlement called Doune on the Moray Firth that in 1783 became known as MacDuff. He bought Duff House, Banff (designed by William Adam) though he never lived in it. His son James, 2nd Earl Fife (1729–1809) completed the building of the house. In the 1817, James, 4th Earl Fife (1776–1857), renamed the town of Mortlach in Moray as Dufftown.The MacDuff tartan, above, is the “hunting” version of their clan tartan, modern colours. Hunting tartans replace the most prominent colour in the main tartan with darker colours like green and blue.Waverley Scotland Genuine Tartan Cloth Commonplace Notebook – Stewart HuntingWaverley Scotland Genuine Tartan Cloth Commonplace Notebook – Stewart HuntingOur price: £9.99ViewThe Stewart Hunting tartan is a dark blend of greens, blues and blacks with thin highlights of yellow and red.The name of this illustrious and royal family is spelled two ways – Stewart and Stuart – but it was not spelled Stuart until the time of Mary, Queen of Scots. Mary, betrothed at the age of five to the Dauphin, Francis II of France, spent 13 years at the French Court. To enable her French associates to pronounce the Stewart name more easily it was decided to respell it without the troublesome “w”. “Hunting” tartans can be dated back to the 16th century. Clans who wore bright colours had the idea of making them more sombre and serviceable for everyday or hunting wear, replacing a prominent colour in the main tartan with a dark colour, but retaining the arrangement of the stripes so that they still showed the clan pattern. There are over 30 tartans associated with the Stewart clan. The differences incorporate different branches of the clan, different areas of origin and further variations using the labels “dress” and “hunting”. Royal Stewart tartan is dominated by a vibrant red, Stewart of Appin has lighter greens and blues and the Fraser Stewart of Atholl tartan is mostly red with blocks of blue, green and purple. The Stewart Hunting tartan is a variation on the Stewart tartan but is predominantly green and black with overchecks of red, yellow and blue. In 1848, Queen Victoria and her husband Prince Albert bought Balmoral Castle. Prince Albert took care of interior decoration, where he used red Royal Stewart and the green Stewart Hunting tartan for carpets, and Dress Stewart for curtains and upholstery.
