Lord John Drummond Tartan
Since the historical sources do not give a clear answer, it is just an educated guess that the grenadiers of the Royal Écossois wore the personal tartan of Lord John Drummond (1714 - 1747), but it seems quite obvious.
                                                                                                                                                    .
The Lord John Drummond Tartan is a reconstruction of the personal tartan of Lord John Drummond, Colonel of the Régiment Royal Écossois (1744 - 1763), shown in a painting which was painted by the Italian court painter Domenico Duprà in 1739.The portrait of Lord John Drummond, which is in the National Galleries of Scotland, served as the inspiration for  R.L. Heil who reconstructed the Lord John Drummond Tartan in 2013.
                                                                                                                                                    .
We proudly adopted the Lord John Drummond Tartan as the regimental tartan for the portrayal of the Royal Écossois.
