Alistair always wore the national dress. In 1822 he was one of the party of Scottish nobles and gentlemen who banqueted with George IV. at Holyrood.

This act was observed by His Majesty, and, remembering the Jacobite leanings of that house, he started up in alarm to fly from the hall, when the incident was explained and the King assured that Glengarry meant no treason.
