The Davidson Ancient tartan is a bright green and blue design, with black overlaid. It has a happy single orange stripe.
The Davidsons appear to have been a Gaelic-speaking clan who lived on lands in Badenoch (a historic area in Strathspey in the Highlands). In the early part of the 14th century, the Davidsons became part of the Clan Chattan confederation. That was an alliance of clans that included the MacPhersons, Mackintoshes, MacGillivrays and MacBeans. The first chief, David Dubh, was the son of Donald Dubh. He was a Comyn, and married Slane, daughter of the sixth Mackintosh chief. Thereafter the clan became known as Clan Dhai.
In the late 14th century the Davidsons appear to have been virtually destroyed by clan conflict. in 1370 there was a battle of Invernahaven over land rent when the Camerons marched on the Mackintoshes. As the rival clans prepared for combat, the Mackintoshes had the support of other families in the Clan Chattan confederation, including the Davidsons and the MacPhersons. However, a disagreement arose between these two clans over the command in battle. The MacPhersons left the field feeling they had been dishonoured. In the ensuing confusion the Camerons attacked the Davidsons who, it is said, suffered almost complete annihilation.
Another account cites a clan battle in 1396 on the North Inch at Perth that was fought in front of King Robert III. The Davidsons fought as part of the Clan Chattan forces against the Camerons. Soon after this battle it seems that the Davidsons moved to Tulloch, the area with which the family is principally associated. Over the centuries the name appears in other parts of Scotland, including the Borders.
