For close on 700 years the lands of Buchanan on the east side of Loch Lomond were possessed by the Buchanans. In Gaelic the name is known as Mac aa Chanonaich meaning "Son of the Canon". The clan historian claims that the lands of Buchanan were given to the chief, for his services against the Danes, by King Malcolm II. They supported King Robert the Bruce during the War of Independence and also fought at the battles of Flodden, Pinkie and Langside. It is claimed that there were Buchanans among the 7,000 Scots who assisted the French King after the Battle of Agincourt in 1421. Badges Bilberry, Oak.

    I ordered 5 swatches, all from the Buchanan Clan
    Loved them All, they were of a very good size and
    I was able to really see what the plaid pattern was.
    This is one of 3 of the clan of my Mother, and I will be
    ordering more to share what ALL of our Clan has
    had thought the years. Thank You for offering the
    smaller sizes.
