Blair is probably of Norman origin or from a barony near Upall, West Lothian. There is a document witnessed by Stephen de Blare 1204 for the monastery of Arbroath.

The name appears in a number of regions in the medieval period namely Renfrew,Ayr, Wigtown, Perth, Fife and Angus. The tartan comes from the James MacKinlay strip from a collection coloured tartan strips created in the 1920s and 1930s
