Scottish Tartans World Register: Romsdal 
Romsdal District Tartan  WR2087



Romsdal is where the Scottish army landed in 1612 under the command of Captain Sinclair and in the pay of the Swedes. They marched through half of Norway until defeated at Kringen. Sinclair was killed by a silver button used as a 'bullitt' (sic). Many Scots settled in Norway after the battle leaving place names such as Skottlia and Skotte. Romsdal is the only place on the west coast of Norway where there is a tradition of tartans.
