Derived from the Gaelic MacCullaich meaning “son of a boar”, the Macculloch name is of Celtic origin and can be found mainly in the south-west of Scotland.

The Macculloch clan are traditionally a lowland clan and held lands in an around the Galloway area with their clan seat being located at Cardoness Castle in the historic county of Kirkcudbrightshire. The castle was built in the 1470s and served the clan until the late 17th century.

Today the clan is armigerous – meaning that they do not have a clan chief.
