I had very much intended to have a ‘Tartan True or False’ post up today, but I spent yesterday trying to bolster my immune system since my brother (and flatmate) and the rest of my family (whom I saw during the holidays) have PLAGUE and have been trying to infect me.
So, we’ll do something different: what myths/perceptions/pet peeves about tartan, Scotland, tweed, Scottish dress, and Scottish history do you have and want explained or proved true or false? I have my list of constant questions, but what do you want to know? Message me through the contact page, by email at tartantinted (at) gmail (dot) com, or leave a comment and I will answer them next week when I hopefully will not be ill.
