|A powerful Border Clan who pursued a deadly feud with
the Maxwells. Their stronghold was Lochwood Tower, near
Beattock, which was burned down by the Maxwells in 1593.
The tartan was first published in the Vestiarium
Scoticum in 1842. Before that time Border tartans were
generally un-named. More likely the tartan came from
the Aberdeenshire Johnstons, whose family seat is at
Caskieben, Blackburn. (Ref: The Setts.. No. 82.
