What tartan pattern do the guides wear at Holyrood Palace?

We visited in early August and absolutely loved it. I loved the tartan pattern of the guides and would like to know what it is. Anyone know?

Thanks!

I don't know for sure but I had a look on the Palace of Holyroodhouse website and saw a couple of photos with guides wearing what looks to me like Hunting Stewart tartan.

Hope this helps.

PS Or as BroadlandWanderer said, you could contact direct to ask :-)

It's ancient hunting Stewart tartan.
