I am one quarter Scottish on my Father's side. His grandfather was a Frazier, sic Fraser.

My late husband was one quarter Scottish on his mother's side. Her father was an Armstrong.

The Scottish clan tartan is a way of identifying the various clans or surnames of Scotland. Some clans have several different tartans for different functions.
