Scottish Tartans World Register: Nairn 
Nairn Family Tartan  WR1331



The exact date of this design is uncertain. We know that it appeared around 1930 in the collection of Messrs. Anderson of Edinburgh. (Later Kinloch Anderson). A note on the weavers scale in the STS collection states '..worn by the Spencer-Nairn family. (done)'. The design is similar to the Hunting Brodie sett without the yellow. Nairns were first recorded in Fife and later in Moray. There is also a family called Nairne of Dunsinnan in Perthshire of MacBeth fame.
The source of tartan 1331 was: Andersons of Edinburgh
