Angus (Mod)

First known mentioned in ‘Clans Originaux’ (1880). Reportedly included in the Neilson, Shaw and MacGregor catalogue of 1888 and is certainly featured in W & A K Johnston’s ‘Tartans of the Clans & Septs ‘ (1906). Its inclusion in the Johnston book suggests it may have been originally regarded as a clan/family tartan but it is now firmly established as a district tartan for the Scottish county of Angus on the east coast. The name means ‘The Only One’, possibly referring to the Angus King of Dalriada in western Scotland in the ninth century. The name is associated with Clan MacInnes, who also claim descent from the Dalriada Scots. The Earldom of Angus was held by the Stewarts and Douglases.
