Murray Clan

Descended from Freskin, a Flemish nobleman who lived during the time of David I in the 12th century, the Murrays would originally settle in West Lothian.

However, it is at Bothwell Castle in South Lanarkshire that the chief family of the clan would make their seat, a large medieval castle that was constructed in the 13th century that still partially stands today.

The Murrays now sit at Blair Castle in Perthshire, near Blair Atholl. Their current clan chief is Bruce Murray, 12th Duke of Atholl – who lives in South Africa.
