Clan Buchanan - 1000 years a Scottish Clan (1016 - 2016)

The genesis of many Scottish clans arise in the mists of time. So too is the origin of the ancient Clan Buchanan. The clan’s seanachaidhs of old tell the story of the chiefly line dating back to Anselan Buey O’Kyan who left Ireland and landed in Argyll in 1016, the twelfth year of King Malcolm II. It is said that Anselan was of the Irish clan Ó’Catháin, a provincial king of north Ulster.
