The tartan is the Barclay tartan and may have been woven for James William Barclay the new Laird of Glenbuchat in 1901
The cloth feels rougher than modern Kilts but it has vibrant colours which have remained fresh despite the passage of time
The kilt was kindly donated to Glenbuchat by Sheena Hepburn of Ballater.
