Scott Tartan

One of the most common British surnames, the Scotts were known as the 'rough clan' or 'saucy scots'. They settled in the Teviot and Ettrick Districts of the Scottish Borders during the 13th century. The original home of the family was a small area round Bellenden, near the head of the Ale Water in Roxburghshire.

The Scotts later acquired Branxholme near Hawick, before adopting the name Buccleuch in 1606, which later became one of the richest Dukedoms in Scotland.
