Wallace Tartan & Clan

In old Latin documents the term Walensis is used to designate the Welsh, but in Scotland is more commonly used as a native name meaning a Strathclyde Briton and not, as is often thought, a Welshman coming in the train of the Norman French. It is from this Walensis that the name Wallace is derived.

Sir William Wallace, Guardian of Scotland and one of Scotland's greatest heros, entwined with the freedom of the Scottish Kingdom and with Scotlands line of Kings is probably one of the most famous Scots thanks to the film Braveheart. The Wallace Monument in Stirling is the most famous but there are in fact over 20 monuments in Scotland dedicated to this famous man. We have devoted a blog to the range of Wallace tartans available, from the bright reds of the Wallace Modern to the more orange hues of the Wallace Ancient and the gorgeous greens of the Wallace Hunting.
