Arbuthnot Tartan Shop

The name Arbuthnot originates from the ancient lands of Arbuthnott in Kincardineshire. These lands came in to the possession of the Swinton family through the marriage of Hugh, to the daughter of Osbert Olifard (or Oliphant) ‘The Crusader’. The lands were granted to Olifard by William the Lion around 1175 and the family adopted the name. Early documents refer to the area as ‘Aberbothenoth’.
