Robertson Tartan & Clan

The Clan's first chief was a chap going by the name of Donnchadh Reamhar - stout Duncan, a minor land-owner in Perthshire. This Duncan was an avid supporter of Robert the Bruce and is said to have nursed Robert back to health following the Battle of Methven. Duncan so loved Robert the Bruce that he named his son after him, Robert succeeded his father and the clan became known as clan Robertson.
