Keith Tartan & Clan

In 1010 a Danish general named Camus was slain by a Chatti warrior. King Malcolm the third, impressed with the valour of the warrior, dipped his fingers into the open wound of the general before proceeding to paint three stripes down the warriors shield. The three red stripes have been used on Clan Keith's crest ever since.
