Montgomery Clan

The Montgomery clan are believed to have arrived in Scotland in the 12th century from Wales and derive their surname from lands located in the country.

It is the lands of the Scottish Lowlands, however, that the clan would become most closely linked – with their historic seat being located at Eglinton Castle in Kilwinning, North Ayrshire. The castle was built towards the end of the 18th century and survived until the 20th when it was slowly destroyed over the course of many years.

Today, the chiefly family of Montgomery sit at Balhomie in Perthshire, the current clan chief is the Rt. Hon. Hugh Archibald William Montgomerie.
