A History of Roxburgh Tartan

Roxburgh, the county of the middle march, is amongst the most beautiful and historic areas of Scotland. Now included in the administrative region known as the "Borders", Roxburgh is the true border county. Here the Roman armies came and withdrew to build Hadrian's Wall to restrain the war-like Scots. Crusaders, Kings, Queens and the great Border clans made this land along the River Teviot rich in history, tradition and spirit. The Roxburgh Tartan now woven commercially for the first time in perhaps a century and a half, is gaining recognition as a truly representative district tartan.
