Clans and Tartans

The Highland clans were defiantly independent: they spoke a different language, were loyal to their clan chiefs, and fiercely proud of their Name. Nowhere was this assertion of themselves as self-contained and separate communities more obvious than in the wearing of their distinctive tartans.

This little book selects leading clans, all of them Highland, and provides a thumbnail sketch of their origins and anecdotes from their histories. Valuable information is added to help you trace your ancestors and each clan history is beautifully illustrated with a swatch of its own particular tartan.
