Following the Jacobite rebellions from 1688 to 1746, which included the last victory of note for the Jacobites at the Battle of Falkirk Muir in 1745, tartan was banned on penalty of imprisonment by the English in the Disarming Act of 1746.However, the ban proved fruitless after a spell and wearing tartan became popular, especially after adventures of Bonnie Prince Charlie became popular in print with the legend decked out in tartan.The highland Society of London managed to have the ban repealed in 1782.These days, of course, tartan is associated with traditional Scottish celebrations like Robert Burns Night on January 25; St Andrew’s Day (November 30); or occasions like weddings where couples can wear their family’s, or clan’s, colours. Although there isn’t a Mc Angus one, but the Mac Angus is related to the Mac Innes, which has a few different, and quite eye-catching styles.Norma Louden, who owns kilt hire store Kiltpin in Callendar Riggs, says the more traditional colours are coming back for modern day weddings and occasions.Norma said: “Tartans like the Anderson or Buchanan are quite old and colourful tartans, but the more neutral colours are coming back.“Greys are becoming really popular, like Highland Granite or Ancient Patriot, because they can go with bridesmaid dresses or you can wear coloured ties with them.“Weathered tartans are really good and have lots of greens and browns, natural colours and you can wear the likes of brown brogues instead of black ones.“There are literally thousands of tartans because people can make their own which get added to The Scottish Register of Tartans.Our members come from all over Scotland, including Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stirling, Perth, Falkirk, Ayrshire, East Kilbride and the Borders.However, our events and dinners are local to Glasgow and Edinburgh city centres for easy accessibility.
