OTHER NAMES WHO WEAR THE Bisset TARTAN:

WHAT DOES THE Bisset NAME MEAN?
The early form of the Bisset name is Byset and one Henricus Byset who returned to Scotland with William the Lion in 1174.

WHERE DOES THE Bisset CLAN HAIL FROM?
The Bisset family traces their ancestral roots back to Norman origin, and first appeared in ancient medieval records in Rosshire. From very early on they not only held lands and estates in Scotland but were also actively allied with other influential families.

The ruins of a priory and the Bisset stronghold founded by John Bisset in 1230 at Beauly in Inverness-shire were at the original site of Beauly Castle, the current seat of the Frasers of Lovat.
