From Electric Scotland:

" In his book, "The Clans of Scotland", noted Scots tartan expert, anthropologist and editor of "Scots Kith and Kin", Dr. Micheil MacDonald confirms this history, "Some vassal clans which served the Lordship of the Isles before its annexation in 1493 claim the right to tartans from that connection. The Currie variant of the old "Lord of the Isles" tartan was granted by the 2nd
 
 Lord MacDonald, as direct descendant to the last Lord of the Isles in 1822. It was confirmed by the present Lord MacDonald in 1976 to the most recent of a long line of MacMhuirrich chiefs, Colonel William McMurdo Currie, 22nd Laird of Balilone and 30th Chief of Clan MacMhuirrich".

Swatches of both the original 1822 tartan and a more recent (ca. 1976) sample are registered at the Scottish Tartans Society in Pitlochry and at the Glencoe Museum in Glencoe, Invernesshire."
