This is a handy pocket guide to Scottish clans, covering over 100 clan names, including details of ancestral lands associated with every clan. It also features each clan tartan in colour.

Throughout the world there exists an enduring fascination with our ancestry – who we are and where we come from. Nowhere is this more evident than with the generations of Scots who over the centuries have left their native Scotland to create a new life in the New World – North America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Europe.

The Scots are a remarkable race with a justifiably proud history and culture which they have successfully passed on through generations. This compact book sets out to identify the larger Scottish clan and family names, their tartans, septs (dependent family names), heraldic crests, mottos, ancestral lands and allegiances.

This book features full colour photographs of each tartan as opposed to digital reproductions, allowing readers to see both the textures and patterns.
