Going to Scotland is on my bucket list. I am of Scottish descent on both sides of the family, my surname is Robson, and my mothers maiden name is Murray. Robsons started out in Scotland but ended up in a village called falstone in Northumberland county, England

Hello, all.  I'm about 3/4 Scots, and although I've never been to Scotland, it's on my bucket list.

TinMan, how much did that cost?  how fast did you get the results?

Comment by M. Travis Henderson on February 9, 2012 at 9:16am

Good morning,

My name is Travis Henderson. From an early age I was taught to be proud of my Scottish heritage. This past September I was able to make my first trip our Home Land. I spent most of my time in Edinburgh. But the highlight of my trip was when I went to Fordell and saw Henderson Castle. Going to Fordell felt like a pilgrimage. While I was there I finally got my first tattoo, the Henderson Crest. I am recently married, and during the wedding I wore a kilt of the Henderson tartan. I am glad to be a member of a group that celebrates Scotland.

Did anyone hear about the Scottish independence referendum?

Ian, you should post some pics of those tartans and kilts.

Comment by Ian Wilson on January 14, 2012 at 9:44pm

my wedding kilt is the Gunn Modern tartan.  which i think is handsome.  being a Wilson, i have a Wilson tartan tie.  and though officially the main color in it is red, it always appears orange.  so i don't want it as a kilt.  but my mom's mom was a Boyd, and i would love a Boyd kilt.
