MacLaren Clan

Descended from Laurence, Abbot of Achtow in Balquhidder, who lived during the 13th century, the MacLaren clan would originally be associated with both the Scottish Highlands and the Island of Tiree.

It would be in Stirlingshire that the historic clan seat of MacLaren would be located at Balquhidder – the same place that the clan’s progenitor would originate.

The current chief of Clan MacLaren is Donald MacLaren of MacLaren & Achleskine.
