  • Name of Tartan:
    Angus (District/Clan)
  • ITI Number: 1179
  • Category: District and Clan
  • Designer / Source: Clans Originaux
  • Date: 1880
Angus (District/Clan)
  • Notes: First known 'outing' was in Clans Originaux of 1880 (checked by EBW in 2004). Very little known of this tartan which was reported to have then been in the Neilson, Shaw and MacGregor catalogue of 1888 and is certainly featured in W & A K Johnston's 'Tartans of the Clans & Septs . . " of 1906. Its inclusion in the Johnston book suggests it may have been originally regarded as a clan/family tartan but it is now firmly established as a district tartan for the Scottish county of Angus on the east coast. The name means 'The Only One', possibly referring to the Angus King of Dalriada in western Scotland in the ninth century. The name is associated with Clan MacInnes, who also claim descent from the Dalriada Scots. The Earldom of Angus was held by the Stewarts and Douglases. Interesting to note that when this first appeared in 1880 there was no county of Angus - it was called Forfarshire until 1928 which rather proves that this was a Clan/Family tartan and not a District
