Format: Paperback
This is an invaluble resource for anyone looking for information relating to the Scottish Clans. It includes colour pictures of coats of arms and tartans for each as well as information relating to their history and origins. The book is also liberally illustrated with excellent colour photographs of places of significance to the names under consideration. The introuction includes first rate information regarding coats of arms in Scotland, tartans, the Clan system, Scottish royalty and so on. Slightly dissappointing is the brevity of the histories for some of the Clans, for example Macrae only merits seventy words.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Kurt A. Johnson TOP 1000 REVIEWER on July 30, 2014
Format: Paperback
This book is an encyclopedia of Scottish Clans and family names. After a very informative introduction, which gives some interesting facts on tartan, and a great thumbnail history of Scotland, it launches into a list of the Scottish Names. A short history is given of the family, and a coat of arms is shown (in-color, of course) along with a colorful picture of the clan’s tartan. Along the way, the reader is treated to many large and attractive color pictures from Scotland.

Overall, I found this to be a great book, and quite a resource for anyone of Scottish descent (such as myself). I loved this book and highly recommend it to all my fellow Scots!

As a person of Scottish descent i have always been incredibly interested in my family history. This book allowed me to look even further into the specifics about my Scottish clan and for any other person who desired to do the same it would be a very good book to add to ones own collection.

I bought this book for my father-in-law. At 94 he is interested in finding out about his roots. One name he was told was Scottish - Morgan, but Morgan is not a Scottish name. It is Welsh. So he is having fun finding out who he really is.

It's a good book. Unfortunately, I was hoping to get all of the plaids through the years of all the different clans, but it is a good book, telling of the clan's tartan, their arms, and, as the title says, origins. The book came in okay condition, the cover being dogeared in some places, but it was readable, and that's what I was after.

Wish it had more information. I'm looking for information on a particular clan, and the book is too general.

Found great information on the different clans and anyone doing research on ancestry would find it to be a great source of information.

Wow, our clans were more hierarchy than anything. I didn't know that. And tartans simply the way a family wove there material.
