Cairns of Finavon  (Name)
  • Notes: Asymmetric tartan designed for David Cairns of Finavon, Baron of Finavon. Cairns are one of the armigerous families of Scotland with records going back at least to the 14th century. The Cairns have a long affiliation with the Clan Grant. The basic sett for the Cairns tartan is taken from the Black Watch, both because many generations of Cairns have served in that regiment, and also because it is the Hunting Grant tartan. The coloration is that of the Lindsay tartan, as the title Baron of Finavon was originally held by the Earls of Crawford. The yellow line on the maroon is to reflect the livery colors of David Cairns, yellow and red. The azure lines are an allusion to the Grant tartan. The Baron of Finavon intends this tartan to be used by any of the name Cairns or a variation thereof: Cairns, Cairnes, Cairnis, Carnes, Carns, Cayrns, Carnys, Cearns, Kairns, Kairnes, Kairnis, Karnes, Karns, Kayrns, Karnys, Kearns.
