Recorded by F Adam in The Clans Septs and Regiments of the Scottish Highlands 1908.. The Clan MacInnes of the West and the Clan Innes of Moray are two separate clans. The similarity in the structure of the MacInnes green tartan and the Innes red have resulted in the use of both tartans as 'dress' and 'hunting' tartans by both clans. The notes in the archives of the Scottish Tartans Society attribute the design to the 'Onich Grocer' with no further explanation. MacInneses are hereditary bowmen to the Chief of MacKinnon.
