Technically the tartan should only be worn by those entitled by descent
to wear it. In Scotland wearing a tartan that is not yours is considered
bad manners. Not so long ago you would have had your throat cut and be
dumped in a ditch ...
The Scout Tartan is registered and may be worn by any Member of The Scout
Association in Scotland who is not entitled by descent to wear a clan tartan.
To qualify one must have a grandparent who is of the relevant clan.
Any of the subjects of HM Queen Elizabeth may wear the " hunting Stuart "
