This tartan was commissioned by the Caitriots, fans of Caitriona M Balfe who plays Claire Fraser in the historical fiction series, Outlander.

The tartan was based on the County Monaghan tartan, but uses navy, blue and greys to reflect Caitriona’s favourite colour palette.

Outlander Television Series (2013)

The only known method of time travel in the Outlander series is traversing a certain geographic location, often indicated by a natural or man-made landmark including the most significant in the series, Craigh na Dun, the location of the fictitious ancient stone circle by which Claire Randall travels from 1945 to 1743. Its distinguishing feature is the large cleft stone.

Claire and the Standing Stones

Clava Cairns, near the Culloden battlefield, may be the inspiration for Outlander’s fictitious stone circle, Craigh na Dun. The stone circles and burial chambers at Clava Cairns date back 4,000 years to the Bronze Age. This isn’t the earliest known use of the site either, as archaeological excavations has found it was once used for farming.
