Wemyss Tartan Shop

The name of Wemyss is derived from the Gaelic ‘uaimh’ meaning ‘cave’.On the coast of Fife, below the ruin known as MacDuff’sCastle are caves containing Pictish paintings and it is thought that these gave rise to local place name of Wemyss. Wemyss has been the seat of the chiefs of the Clan Wemyss since the twelfth century and they almost certainly took their name from the land where they made their home.
