Morrison Clan

The Morrison clan have traditionally been associated with many areas of Scotland including the Isle of Lewis and Harris, Sutherland and North Uist.

While these clans all have distinct branches, it was decided in 1965 by the Lord Lyon to bring them under the control of one chief, whether they were related or not. Therefore, the current chief of clan Morrison is Dr. John Ruairidh Morrison of Ruchdi.

The clan had two main historic seats – Bognie Castle for the Morrisons on the mainland and Dùn Èistean for the Morrisons on Lewis.
