Mac Tartans

It's a common misconception that a Mac surname is Scottish and a Mc surname is Irish. In fact they are one and the same, Mc being an abbreviation of Mac. Both variations are used widely throughout Scotland and in in Gaelic mean "son of".

Our images of authentic Scottish woven tartans from MacAlister to MacThomas are scanned from our own swatch books to provide the most accurate colour representation possible. However, the appearance of tartan colours can often vary depending on your monitor and graphics card.

We offer a swatch service for customers who prefer to view the tartan and feel the quality before committing to a major purchase such as a kilt. The cost of your swatch will be refunded when you place an order of over £45.00 in value, and then notify us of your swatch order reference number.
