Super Sidera Votum is Latin and means, “Our wishes are above the stars.” Scottish mottos are in Latin because Latin was the church’s and scholars’ language. Therefore, they could be read and understood throughout Europe. The Clan Chief owns the crest as the exclusive heraldic property, which clansmen are permitted to wear. The buckle indicates that the wearer follows the Chief (the owner of the crest/motto).

Rattray History

Rattray is a small clan but one of the oldest in Scotland. Descended from royalty, Rattray’s settled in Perth and Kinross in the 11th century. The earliest record of a Rattray is Alanus de Ratheriff in 1165. There are many versions of the name. The historic seat, Rattray Castle, still stands. The Rattray’s created their tartan on or before the 11th century. The design is registered in The Scottish Register of Tartans. There are different versions of the tartan, including ancient and modern. Continue reading more about Rattray history, royal connections, lands, chiefs, tartans, and castle.
