Ross_(R._R._McIan)Happy National Tartan Day, a national holiday for all Scottish-Americans and the date on which the Declaration of Arbroath was signed in 1320. The Follow Friday location is the Scottish Tartans Museum. I think I’ll take myself out to lunch (no haggis!) to celebrate, but first a bit on Clan Ross, a Highland Scottish clan I belong to courtesy of my Aberdeenshire grandfather, William Watson Ross.

Clan Ross has four tartans, but I must admit there are so many variations on the Web that I’ve chosen the ones I like best, which is not exactly rigorous historical research. Here they are:

1. Ross Dress tartan (modern & ancient):
