every surname merits a tartan. l have designed loads of personal tartans for people. Give me up to 6 colours including the main background colour and l will come up with something :-)

You don't have to have worn a kilt to own your personal tartan. If you change your mind let me know. :-) The last tartan l designed and registered was 2 weeks ago for the grandson of Sir Harry Lauder and he has never worn a kilt. see: https://www.tartanregister.gov.uk/tarta ... ?ref=13010

yes that's them. I'm sure Scott is the younger one. It's the older one that works on the railway.
