McTavish was born in Glasgow, Scotland. He is the son of Alec and Ellen McTavish. The family, especially his father, was politically active, and political discourse was common in their household. His family left Glasgow when McTavish was a child, and throughout his adult life he has lived in places such as Canada, the United States, and England before settling in New Zealand.
