Logan Tartan

The name Logan probably came from the place of the same name in East Ayrshire, which was most-likely derived from the Gaelic 'lagan' meaning 'little hollow'. The name appears in Roxburghshire (Scottish Borders) in the early 13th Century and later in Angus. A Logan Tower was built in Midlothian in the 13th C. and associated names remain, while Logan House and Estate in Dumfries and Galloway gave its name to the village of Port Logan and Logan Botanic Garden.

The family held the Barony of Restalrig (Edinburgh) from the 14th Century. The influence of this branch of the family fell away after the Gowrie Conspiracy of 1600, in which Sir Robert Logan of Restalrig was implicated.
