14 October 1788 - Today in 1788 the first steamboat experiment was held on Dalswinton Loch. Robert Burns was farming at Ellisland, just outside Dumfries, when he was invited by his landlord, Patrick Miller, to go out in a small experimental steamboat.

Ordering GuideWith our new ScotClans site we have built a much more stable and secure shopping platform. Shopping with us could not be easier.
How do I shop at ScotClans?To make things easier we have divided the site into three main shopping areas:
The Scottish Shop:
A massive range of Scottish goods; clothing, jewellery, gifts, homewares, clan crest items and much much more. The bulk of our product range can be found in here.
Kilts & Highlandwear
Because we have such a huge range of highlandwear including kilts, outfits and accessories we have put this under a separate shop on the site. If you are looking for kilts or kilt accessories please browse through this section.
Scottish Clan Shops
A shop with your name on it!
within each clan mini site (found via 'my clan page' or 'what's my clan') you will see a link to a clan shop. The clan shops separate out all the items available with your clan tartan or clan crest so its an ideal place to look for specific tartan or crested items. You can also use the 'my clan shop' link at the top right to browse through the list of clan shops or even find which clan shop is right for you.
