Family Tartans

The most distinctive feature of Scotland’s history, both nationally and internationally {especially in Cape Breton} is probably that of Clanship and the Highland Clans.

Many Scottish names are Clan names and many many other names are Septs of these Clans.  A Scottish Sept name is a name that is affiliated with one or more Clans by marriage, land claims or issues of protection or a combination of these.  Septs also arise through distortions or different spellings of a name.  Some MacIntyres moved into Clan Chattan territory to avoid being assimilated by the Campbells for example.

The staff at Tartans and Treasures can guide you through your Clan affiliation through their extensive collection of books and maps……then they can show you your specific tartan in a scarf, tie, tartan blanket, tam, etc.  They also also have your registered clan badge in hand carved oak plaques, whiskey glasses, engraved Collins crystal, mugs and many other items all made in Scotland.  They can also connect many different Irish names to the particular district or county in Ireland of which all have tartans.  Visitors interested in geneology are urged to check their clan affiliation and view the largest collection of tartan scarves, ties, blankets in wool and mohair, tams, shawls, country caps and vests in North America.

The staff can also connect many different Irish names to the particular district or county in Ireland from which they originated,  of which all have tartans.

Drop by to trace your clan affiliation and view the largest collection of tartan scarves, ties, blankets in wool and mohair, tams, shawls, country caps and vests in North America.
