Re: Sinclair Tartan - forwarded message
Frank Adam and Thomas Innis of Learny in their book "the Clans Septs and
Regiments of the Scottish Highlands" tell us that the Septs of Clan Sinclair
are: Caird, Clouston, Clyne, Linkletter, and Mason. There are those who
would addGallie, Flett, and Moar to this list. Pottinger is not listed and
the fact that your correspondent saw some Pottingers wearing Sinclair tartan
in Orkney does not make them a Sept of Clan Sinclair. However, this is far
from "hanging offence" and to my mind is a compliment to the historical fact
of Clan Sinclair's strong presence in the North -- ie Caithness and Orkney.
For example, Charlie Simpson from Wick, one the best known winners of the
heavy events in Scotland during the '6o's and '70's wears a Sinclair Ancient
Hunting tartan kilt.
Hope this is helpful
