The perfect introduction to Scottish tartans, with a pictorial representation of each
Produced in association with the Scottish Tartans Authority and written by expert Brian Wilton, this little book includes thumbnail examples of the individual tartans, as well as historical information on the 247 traditional tartans, alphabetically by clan or family name for easy look-up, from Abercromby to Young. Long associated with that most distinctive feature of Scotland's history, the clan, tartan is integral to the national dress and the clan's tartan remains a powerful symbol of a family's pride in their Scottish ancestry and in Scotland itself. Perfect for general interest or simply to prove one's ancestral lineage at dinner parties, this guide will keep you careful not to confuse your MacLean with your MacLennan or your Rose with your Ross. Also included is an introduction to the history of tartan, including the part it plays in the traditional national dress. Includes a guide on traditional Scottish highland dress and how to wear it.
