MADE for Augustus, Earl of Inverness, sometime prior to 1822. Logan used this sett to illustrate his method of recording tartans in his book, ‘The Scottish Gael..’, published in 1831. The territorial designation of this Royal tartan makes it appropriate for use as a district tartan in the town and county of Inverness.
THIS is a district tartan. Designed in the 1950s by Councillor John Hannay of the Hannah Clan Society. Galloway (Scottish Gaelic: Gall-Ghàidhealaibh/Gallobha) is a region in southwestern Scotland comprising the historic counties of Wigtownshire and Kirkcudbrightshire. A native or inhabitant of Galloway is called a Gallovidian. The place name Galloway is derived from the Gaelic i nGall Gaidhealaib (“amongst the Gall Gaidheil”). The Gall Gaidheil, literally meaning “Stranger-Gaidheil”, originally referred to a population of mixed Scandinavian and Gaelic ethnicity that inhabited Galloway in the Middle Ages.
