The Baird Clan

The Bairds are an ancient family and owned lands in Lanarkshire and the Barony of Cambuskenneth in the 13th and 14th centuries. They spread northwards to Banffshire and Aberdeenshire and acquired importance as Sheriffs of Aberdeen. There were some important branches, including Auchmeddan and Newbyth, and John Baird was created a knight baronet and became a Lord of Session with the title Lord Newbyth. General Sir David Baird had a long and notable military career in India, the Cape of Good Hope and at the siege of Copenhagen. After the death of Sir John Moore at Corunna he assumed chief command of the Army. He died in 1829.

Bought for my wife, to match one of my kilts, this is an excellent product. Just the right weight for dancing in.

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.
