Malcolm Clan

Derived from the Gaelic Mac Ghille Chaluim ­­­meaning son of the disciple of Columba the Maccallums and Malcolms are a Scottish Highland clan associated with the areas of Dumbartonshire, Stirlingshire and Argyllshire.

It is believed that the clans united under the same chief in the 18th century.

The clan traditionally held castles at Lochore and Poltalloch before moving into their current clan seat – Duntrune Castle in Argyll – in 1792. Duntrune is the oldest continuously occupied castle in mainland Scotland and is currently owned by the clan chief of Mccallum, Robin Neill Malcolm.
