Clan Maclachlan, also known as Clan Lachlan,[2] Clann Lachainn (Argyll),[1] and Clann Lachlainn,[1] is a Highland Scottish clan that historically centred on the lands of Strathlachlan (Srath Lachainn "Valley of Lachlan") on Loch Fyne, Argyll on the west coast of Scotland. Tradition gives Lachlan Mor a descent from an Irish prince of the O'Neill dynasty, The Maclachlans were loyal Jacobites. They were said to have been present at the Battle of Killiecrankie in 1689 The clan took part in the Jacobite risings as loyal supporters of the Stuart kings of Scotland. The seventeenth chief of the clan was killed in the Battle of Culloden in 1746.[4] Following the Jacobite defeat, a Government warship is said to have damaged the clan seat of old Castle Lachlan. Today the clan is alive and lives as the Clan Maclachlan Society and the Lachlan Trust.
