Tartan seems to embrace so many different subjects that we had
to establish an overspill section and now that's filling up at an
alarming rate! For Members Only there are the
comprehensive Archives - at last count there are over 50
articles with many more to come. The graphics Library is host to over 350
stunning full colour portraits by Victorian artists MacLeay, MacIan and Raphael
Tuck. Then there's our comprehensive collection of medallions
stretching from the Union of the Crowns of Scotland and England in
1707, right through to the end of Queen Victoria's reign - all of
them in their own way, part of the tartan story.
Finishing off the fascinating graphics are over 150 photographs
of the original 1880 Clans Originaux tartans - so anyone
wanting to see what clan tartans were being promoted by the
Parisian merchants, will have a field day.
'Nostalgia' is a real treat of a trip
down memory lane for our oldest members who can gaze longingly at
the adverts from the early part of the last century. If genealogy and heraldry are your
favourites, then have a look at these two sections.
Background information on the clan system is a very interesting read and then
comes our pride and joy which is the Bairns section - once you've
opened that up, we dare you not to starting doing some colouring in
If you have any ideas on new sections that you'd like to see on
subjects that we haven't covered - drop us an e-mail!
