Buchanan Blue Tartan: For close on 700 years the lands of Buchanan on the east side of loch Lomond were possessed by the Buchanans. In Gaelic the name is known as Mac a' Chanonaich meaning 'Son of the Cannon'. The clan historian claims that the lands of Buchanan were given to the chief for his services against the Danes by King Malcom II. They supported King Robert the Bruce during the war of independence and also fought at the battles of Fiodden, Pinkie and Landslide. It is claimed that there were Buchanans among the 7000 Scotts who assisted the French Kingafter the battle of Agincourt in 1421.
