The Anderson Clan

Now fairly common throughout Scotland the name Anderson is first recorded in Peebles and Dumfries during the later stages of the 13th century. Thereafter there were families of the name in Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Banffshire, and amongst the oldest branches are those of Downhill, Westerbreck and Candacraig. In the Highlands the name takes the form MacAndrew which like Anderson, means "son of Andrew". Little John MacAndrew of Dalnahatnich, was a famous archer and his exploits against cattle thieves are still retold in his native glen. The MacAndrews of the Inverness area are claimed as septs of Clan Chattan, but the Andersons, as a family, are generally regarded as septs of Clan Ross.
This product is proudly made in Scotland.

This is a nice looking item, made of wool with handsome fringe. The edges are cut and hemmed; it's not a single woven piece. It does have a tendency to roll a bit at the edges but I am hoping a good ironing will take care of that. International shipping does take longer than promised - mine arrived in North Carolina in about 16 days. Be aware that an item may be out of stock but you won't know until you buy it!

This is lovely, I bought it as present for my mum from my son - whose name is Anderson! It's thick enough to be worn as a scarf but fine enough to be worn with an "outfit" too.

Buyers Guide To Sashes

The manner of wearing tartan sashes has had customary significance for the last two centuries.

The sash is worn as respect for tradition and is consistent with custom.  The different methods mentioned below are appropriate for ladies in different circumstances.

The different ways to wear a sash is based upon a careful study of old portraits, prints and traditional practice carried out by the Lord Lyon King of Arms and thus bears the authoritative approval.

Due to a new ruling by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, permission has been granted by her majesty for Members of the Scottish Country Dance Society to allow them to wear sashes on the left shoulder. This is an honour bestowed upon the Society because she is Patron.


1. The sash is worn over the right shoulder, across the breast and secured by a brooch on the left hip. A more modern way of wearing a sash, that can be worn by any woman, usually with an evening dress.

2. Style worn by Clan Women: The sash is worn over the right shoulder across the breast and is secured by a pin or small brooch on the right shoulder.

3. Style worn by Wives of Clan Chiefs and by Wives of Colonels of Scottish Regiments: The sash which may be fuller in size is worn over the left shoulder and secured with a broach on the left shoulder.

4. Style worn by country dancers or where any lady desires to keep the front of the dress clear of the sash. Perhaps to wear a sash of some chivalric order or any orders and decorations. The style is similar to the belted plaid and is really a small arisaid. It is buttoned on at the back of the waist, or is held by a small belt, and is secured at the right shoulder by a pin or small brooch, so that the ends fall backwards from the right shoulder and swing at the back of the right.
