Tartan

Discover your Scottish roots!

If you are interested in exploring your Scottish heritage, or if you would like to see what your tartan looks like, please stop by the Scottish Heritage tent at the Central Florida Scottish Highland Games. We have staff on hand who will be able to help start you on your journey to discovering your Scottish roots. If you are looking for even more information about your roots, we have some websites we can direct you to so you can search at your leisure.

After you find your Clan, look for the area/s of Scotland they inhabited by using the various clan maps you will find around the Heritage tent. Look at the History of Scotland time line to see if your Clan may have been involved in some of the events of your history!

While you are visiting with us at the Heritage tent, take the time to view our expanded display and discussion of the standing stones of Scotland. Standing stones are an integral part of the Outlander series of books and television show by Diana Gabaldon. They actually do exist in and around Scotland, so join us in discovering the mystery of these ancient relics!

We will also have volunteers in period dress this year, so please feel free to ask about the mode of dress at the time, the use of tartans and the types of materials and dyes used in days past.

We have lots of other info and displays available, so please take some time out of your day to explore your Scottish heritage. We'd love to meet you, help you discovery your roots and talk to you about our mutual love of Scottish history and heritage.
