Tartan of Clan Newlands

This is the tartan of Clan Newlands, probably of Norse origin back in time from Edinburgh to Caithness and Sutherland, Orkneys, Shetlands and Trondheim in Norway. The DNA from father to son should be the characteristic Norse type, which is slightly different from the rest of Scandinavia and very ancient in origin. Norse or old Norwegian is spoken Iceland. There may be remnants of it in remote areas of Norway. Written Norwegian is almost the same as written Danish.
