MacLachlan Clan

Descended from Lachlan Mor, a man who lived on the shores of Loch Fyne in the 13th century, the MacLachlan clan are most associated with Highlands, particularly with Loch Fyne – the area their founder is from.

The clan’s seat has always been called Castle Lachlan – however, over the years there have been two different interpretations and locations of the building. The first Castle Lachlan was located on the banks of Loch Fyne and was built in the 15th century, this would eventually be replaced by the nearby ‘New Castle Lachlan’ which was built in 1790 and still stands as the family’s home today.

The current clan chief is Euan John Maclachlan of Maclachlan.
