Welcome to the 'Clan Maclaine of Lochbuie' website.

Within this website you will find information on the clan itself, our history and a forum for discussion. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Clan Maclaine of Lochbuie is a highland Scottish clan. This clan is NOT a branch of the Clan MacLean of Duart.

The Maclaine of Lochbuie branch of the family are descended from Hector, the brother of Lachlan. Lachlan founded the Duart branch of the MacLeans.

Lorne Maclaine of Lochbuie, 26th (and current) Chief is recognised by the Standing Council of Scottish Chiefs and Lord Lyon.

The Macleans of Duart and the Maclaines of Lochbuie are of the same family, but represent two different clans.

The Maclaines of Lochbuie spelled their name 'Maclean' until the mid 1700's. As a result, names spelled 'MacLean' are not automatically Duart, but may be Lochbuie.

Septs of the Clan:

Black, MacCormick, MacFadyen, MacFadzean, MacGilvra, Macilvora, Paton, Patton.
