    My husband decends from the clan MacKinnon, from an ancestor who immigrated to Prince Edward Island. Odd thing is he doesn’t care at all – I think his ancestry is incredible…how sad that a once proud clan is reduced to utter indifference via expatriation!

    It was the clan cambell that murderd most of the clan Lamont too forcing many to change there names … take a look at the Clan Lamont museum in Dunoon.
    The cambels were the scum of scotland
