Almost all of this information comes from The Heraldry Society "Herladry Beasts, Banners and Badges for Beginners". This contains a very extensive pdf all about the various aspects of the coat of arms.
Here are a few pieces of information on this site you may find useful.

Thanks to Ross MacAngus of Banton for the professional artist shield prints and the large tartan pdf files
and Donald MacInnes of Cumbernauld, Scotland for information on the crests.
