Elliot Tartan & Clan

Clan Elliot were one of the Reiver families based in the Scottish Borders. What is a Reiver? The reivers were raiders living on the border of Scotland and England. Theses raiders would go back and forth across the border plundering from each other. Often the reivers had the explicit backing of the crown as they were the first line of defence against either, English Armies headed north or Scottish Armies heading south.
