You may find it interesting that when the Queen commissioned the London Highland Society to search out the "Tartans of Scotland" and report back to her in the year 1745.  The oldest example of Tartan they returned with was The MacIntyre & Glenorchy, said by them in their official report to be the oldest sample extent in the Highlands.  In fact it was said to be so old that no one remembered whether it started as a District Tartan or as a MacIntyre Tartan! Hence its official designation as MacIntyre & Glenorchy!
