Buchanan Clan

Early Scottish history is quite murky, as is the case with the origins of Clan Buchanan. The Buchanan clan is thought to have originated in 1016 A.D. when young Anselan O’Kyan fled Ireland. He was the son of the reigning Ulster monarch and was forced to flee Ireland by Canute the Dane after participating in the slaughter of many of Canute’s men. Anselan either gained land near Loch Lomand after service to King Malcolm II of Scotland or gained it through marriage to the daughter of the Earl of Lennox. The first evidence of a Buchanan clan was recorded in this area in 1225.

This is a short extract from the full Clan history which accompanies each of our flags. Presented on fine art paper, your Clan history can be displayed with pride.
