Waverley Scotland Genuine Tartan Cloth Commonplace Notebook – Dress GordonWaverley Scotland Genuine Tartan Cloth Commonplace Notebook – Dress GordonOur price: £9.99ViewThe Dress Gordon tartan’s dark greens, blues and blacks are brightened by wide flashes of white and yellow accents.The first record of the Gordons places them in the Lowlands and suggests that they were of Anglo-Norman origin. The Highland clan is claimed to be descended from Sir Adam Gordon (d. 1333), a supporter of King Robert the Bruce, who received the lands of Strathbogie in return for his services to the king. The family built Huntly Castle on these lands at the beginning of the 15th century.Although the senior male line ended in 1402, the marriage of Elizabeth Gordon (d. 1439) to Alexander of the influential Seton family consolidated their powerful position in the Highlands.They further profited from the authority given to them by the Stewart kings and gained other lands and titles, including those of Sutherland. This inspired the sobriquet “Cock o’ the North”, a nickname affectionately given to the Chief of the Gordons. They did come into conflict with the Scottish Crown when George Gordon, the 4th Earl of Huntly (1514–1562) contested the earldoms of Mar and Moray bestowed by Mary, Queen of Scots on her half-brother James Stewart (c. 1531–1570). In October 1562, the Gordons were defeated by a royal army at the Battle of Corrichie in Aberdeenshire. Earl Huntly died during the fray and his body was later taken to Edinburgh where it was publicly disgraced. However, the 5th Earl (d. 1576) made peace with Mary and became her Chancellor in 1565.The Gordons of Haddo acquired their lands in the northeast in the 15th century. Haddo House, a fine example of Palladian architecture (inspired by the designs of the Italian architect Andrea Palladio) by William Adam (1689–1748), was built for them in the 17th century. Waverley Scotland Genuine Tartan Cloth Commonplace Notebook – Dress MackenzieWaverley Scotland Genuine Tartan Cloth Commonplace Notebook – Dress MackenzieOur price: £9.99ViewThe Dress Mackenzie tartan contrasts wide bands of snowy white with dark blacks, blues and greens – and a single vibrant red stripe.The Mackenzie clan is of Celtic origin, and its history goes back to at least the 13th century when they were established at Eilean Donan, near Kyle of Lochalsh, in the western Highlands of Scotland which was to be their stronghold for centuries.In the 15th century, at a time when many of the Gaelic clans were asserting their independence of the monarchy, Alexander, 6th of Kintail, and 1st Chief Mackenzie (before 1436, after 1471), gave his allegiance to the Royal House of Stewart. Alexander’s loyalty to James III against John of Islay, 4th Lord of the Isles (chief of Clan Donald, d. 1423) was rewarded with a royal charter to the lands at Kintail and later with the award of lands that had been confiscated from the MacDonalds.Through successive chiefs, the Mackenzies continued to pledge their allegiance to the Crown, and by the beginning of the 17th century they had acquired the forfeited lands of the MacLeods in Lewis and the MacDonnels in Lochalsh. In 1609, Kenneth, 12th Chief of Kintail, was created Lord Mackenzie, and his son, Colin, was created the 1st Earl of Seaforth 14 years later.The Mackenzies installed the Macraes as hereditary governors of Eilean Donan Castle, and the loyalty of the Macraes to their overlords was such that they were known as the “Mackenzies’ shirt of mail”.The fortunes of the clan wavered in the 18th century when their support of the failed 1715 Jacobite Rebellion resulted in the forfeit of their lands and titles. The lands were repurchased and the title of Earl of Seaforth restored in 1771, but the male line died out in 1815.The Mackenzie motto is Luceo non uro – “shine not burn”.Waverley Scotland Genuine Tartan Cloth Commonplace Notebook – Scott WeatheredWaverley Scotland Genuine Tartan Cloth Commonplace Notebook – Scott WeatheredOur price: £9.99ViewThe earthy tones of the Scott Weathered tartan are an elegant blend of green and grey, with pink, white and yellow stripes.
