Approx 50mm x 40mm

Good back pin.

Clan Gordon, also known as the House of Gordon, is a Scottish clan. The chief of the clan was the powerful Earl of Huntly, and now also the Marquess of Huntly.

In 1513, during the Anglo-Scottish Wars, the Clan Gordon led by Alexander Gordon, 3rd Earl of Huntly fought at the Battle of Flodden.

In 1526 the title of Earl of Sutherland and chieftenship of the Clan Sutherland passed by right of marriage to Adam Gordon who was a younger son of George Gordon, 2nd Earl of Huntly.

Later during the Anglo-Scottish Wars, George Gordon, 4th Earl of Huntly defeated an English army at the Battle of Haddon Rig in 1542 but the Gordons were later part of the Scottish army which was defeated at the Battle of Pinkie Cleugh in 1547.

The Gordons fought on both sides during both the Jacobite rising of 1715 and the Jacobite rising of 1745. In 1715 the fighting force of the Clan Gordon is given by General George Wade as 1000 Claymores. The second Duke of Gordon followed the Jacobites in 1715 and fought at the Battle of Sheriffmuir.

Jacobite rising of 1745 – Cosmo Gordon, 3rd Duke of Gordon supported the British government during the rising of 1745. However, his brother, Lord Lewis Gordon, raised two Jacobite regiments against the Hanoverians. The Gordon Jacobites fought at the Battle of Inverurie (1745), the Battle of Falkirk (1746) and the Battle of Culloden (1746).

British Army Regiments – Two regiments named the “Gordon Highlanders” have been raised from the Clan Gordon. The first was the “81st” formed in 1777 by the Hon. Colonel William Gordon, son of the Earl of Aberdeen and was disbanded in 1783. The second was the “92nd” raised by Alexander the 4th Duke of Gordon in 1794.

The regiment was formed on 1 July 1881 instigated under the Childers Reforms. The new two-battalion regiment was formed out of the 75th (Stirlingshire) Regiment of Foot—which became the 1st Battalion of the new regiment—and the 92nd (Gordon Highlanders) Regiment of Foot, which became the 2nd Battalion. In 1994 it was amalgamated with the Queen’s Own Highlanders (Seaforth and Camerons) to form the Highlanders (Seaforth, Gordons and Camerons).

Kennedy Clan History – The family originated from Ulster and are descended from Duncan of Carrick who lived in the 12th century. The first mention of the name is that of Gilbert Mac Kennedi who witnessed a Charter from the lands of Carric in the reign of William the Lion.

John Kennedy of Dunure was in situ at Cassilis in 1360 and his son, Sir Gilbert, was a hostage for the release of David II from English custody three years earlier. Gilbert’s son James married Princess Mary Stewart, daughter of Robert III, and their son, another Robert, was created Lord Kennedy in 1452. His brother James (1408-65) was Bishop of Dunkeld and Archbishop of St Andrews.

David, 3rd Lord Kennedy, was created Earl of Cassilis in 1502 and died at the Battle of Flodden eleven years later. The 2nd Earl was murdered by Sir Hugh Campbell of Loudon, Sheriff of Ayr, from whom he had unsuccessfully attempted to rescue James V. The 3rd Earl was poisoned in France on his return from the marriage of Mary Queen of Scots to the Dauphin in 1558.

A Sporran is a pouch (Scottish Gaelic for ‘purse’). Now a decorative part of Highland dress, it was originally an everyday  practical item. Made of leather or fur, it usually has more or less elaborate silver or other ornamentation, especially on the clasp or hanger. It is worn on a chain or belt around the waist, allowing the sporran to lie below the waist of the person wearing a kilt.

The Gaelic sgian dubh meaning “black knife”, where “black” may refer to the usual colour of the handle of the knife.

Scottish Atholl Highlanders Sporran

Atholl Highlanders goat hair sporran with six black tassels made using vintage badge and aged horsehair to give a older Victorian style.

The Atholl Highlanders is a Scottish infantry regiment. Based in Blair Atholl, the regiment is not part of the British Army. Instead, the regiment is in the private employ of the Duke of Atholl, making it the United Kingdom’s, and indeed Europe’s, only legal private army.

In 1839, the 6th Duke, as Lord Glenlyon, resurrected the regiment as a bodyguard which he took to the Eglinton Tournament at Eglinton Castle, Ayrshire. Three years later, in 1842, the regiment escorted Queen Victoria during her tour of Perthshire. In 1844, when the Queen stayed as a guest of the Duke at Blair Castle, the regiment mounted the guard for the entire duration of her stay. In recognition of the service that the regiment provided during her two visits, the Queen announced that she would present the Atholl Highlanders with colours, thus giving the regiment official status.

Hand crafted with vintage style leathers, badge and antiqued horsehair to give a vintage look.

Made to order. Approx 4 weeks

Bespoke Sporran Design

We also offer a complete design and make service for sporrans and if you have a sporran you would like made as a special design please contact us. We would love to hear from you. We can incorporate a vintage cantle you may own or offer a range of new and vintage cantles.

All the skins used for making our sporrans are ethically sourced, and are vintage remodelled skins and masks, road kill, or have died a natural death. Any protected species will have the required license number stamped in to the back of the sporran.

What Size? – Scottish Jacket & Kilt Jacket Sizing Guide

To make sure your items fit perfectly when they arrive, we’ve made some measuring guides with handy tips to help you take accurate measurements first time.

How to Measure for your kilt

  • It’s easiest to have someone measure you
  • Stand straight up and relax
  • Measure at points shown without holding your breath
  • Ensure measurement is not taken over thick clothing
  • Tape measure should be snug but not too tight
  • All measurements should be taken in inches

Waist: A firm measurement taken just below the bottom of the rib cage on the natural waist.

Hips: Seat: Taken at the widest point of the seat.

Length: Measure from the natural waist to the middle of the kneecap. Take this measurement to the nearest 1/4 inch. It is important that this is done standing straight with your feet together. Note: Max kilt length available for hire is 28 inch.

Height – It’s very important that we get your full height (head to toe) so we can judge if the sizes you have provided appear correct, we will confirm this with you when you place an order.

Jacket & Tweed Sizes

Measurements should preferably be taken by another person. Always stand up straight and look straight ahead. BE NATURAL – Relax, and do not inhale and hold your breath or exhale and hold.

CHEST – Measure around the fullest part of the chest (this is generally across the nipple), be sure to keep the tape up under your arms and around shoulder blades.
WAIST – Measure the waist keeping one finger between tape and body (The widest point is usually across the navel).

We specialise in creating a range of bespoke shooting garments and Highland jackets to suit any occasion. Our tailor works to bring personal details to suit your requirements. Made to order by our own tailors in approx. Approx. 10-12 weeks.
