TartanIs there one? There is no record of a Murison Tartan. Most Murisons are believed to use the Aberdeen District Tartan WR1801.
Aberdeen District Tartan I have gone for Morrison tartans for my Kilts. They are Ancient Green & Modern Morrison (dark) both in my opinion look good in kilts; particularly the Ancient.

..well my mum , Phyllis was a Murison and she said that any one with that name was related... who knows. Anyway my mum passed away in 1998 .......Before she passed on I got a little information from her. YES. the murison ~Sept~ (small part of a clan) did indeed have a tartan! I remember my mother having a swatch of it, but I can not clearly remember how it looked. Unfortunately, a fire destroyed the swatch. Mum said that her mum was a Ferguson and that somehow the two were connected and that their tartan was the backing for building on the Murison's???not too sure on that ,also that the Buchanan had some of the colouring and lines (thickness) had some bearing on the tartan. My Grandfather talked of a Murison Tartan that was recovered in the 20th century from a hiding place in a cottage wall in Lewis . It was put there inside a bible for safe keeping during the Tartan ban. A good story but this turned out to be for the Morrison Tartan (red).
Afterwards (1747), the English king, to punish and control the clans, outlawed any use of tartan, and actually executed violators of this harsh rule. When the tartan ban was lifted (1774), many Scots hustled to take up remnants of the noble past, and there began the rush of clans clasping tartan to their bosoms---whether they had one before or not.
