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 Gaelic means 'son of'.
Our images of authentic Scottish woven 100% pure new wool 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 computer or mobile device.
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.
