|The Dundas tartan originated in the Vestiarium
Scoticum (1842). The design has the traditional green, black, blue
background of the Highland military tartans with twin red stripes
on the green. Dundas's played an important role in restoring the Highland
way of life after the penalties imposed as a result of the '45 rebellion.
It was Henry Dundas, who in 1784, introduced the bill to parliament
restoring estates forfeited to the Crown after the uprising, following
the repeal on the wearing of tartan in 1782
