This series of Tartan Notebooks celebrates Scottish Traditions – the many unique features of Scotland and its people. History, clans and tartans, the landscape of Scotland – hills, glens, mountains, lochs and rivers guarded by the many castles and strongholds of Scotland, some ancient and ruined, but each one full of history, with a story to tell.

Warrants of Appointment as Tailors and Kiltmakers to HM The Queen, HRH

Kinloch Anderson has created its own exclusive range of tartans which are available to all. They are based on the sett of the Clan Anderson tartan. The name Anderson means son of Andrew and Kinloch means head of the loch. The Rowanberry Tartan blends four shades of red and a golden yellow overcheck. In Scotland the berries of the rowan tree are red whereas in Asia there are some species where the berries are a golden yellow. The tree is famed for its hardiness and ability to survive in the mountains and its long, interesting history and mythology. Rowan is a Scottish word, derived from the Gaelic rudha-an, which means “the red one’’.
Commonplace notebooks date back to the Scottish Enlightenment. Many thinkers and writers used a Commonplace notebook for writing down ideas and knowledge. Adam Smith, Robert Burns, David Hume, and later, writers such as Sir Walter Scott, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Virginia Woolf used commonplace notebooks.
