Stewart of Atholl Clan

Connected to the main Stewart clan through common ancestry, the Stewarts of Atholl are descended from a son of Alexander Stewart, Earl of Buchan. The family would soon establish a stronghold at Garth in the area of Perthshire and Sir James Stewart, “the Black Night of Lorne”, would build a castle there at the end of the 14th century.

James’s son Sir John of Balveny would then gain the title of Earl of Atholl and would fight alongside his half brother, King James II of Scotland in opposition against rebellions launched by the Lords of the Isles in the West of Scotland in the mid 15th century.

The Stewarts of Atholl were well known for their fighting strength, at one point having up to 1500 men under their command, and would fight during both the Orange and Hanoverian successions. At the Battle of Culloden in 1746, Atholl men would rout their Hanoverian counterparts despite an ultimate Jacobite failure.

Many of the Stewarts of Atholl would then go on to form the Atholl Highlanders, Europe’s only private army, which remains active to this day.
