MacLaine of Lochbuie Tartan

An unruly branch of the MacLean family who had their base at Lochbuie on the south coast of Mull, the MacLaines were descended from Hector MacLean, brother of MacLean of Duart in the 14th C. The clan built Moy Castle at the head of Loch Buie as their home in the 15th C. Their lands were briefly lost to the Campbells in the 1670s following a bitter dispute which arose from both the MacLaines and MacLeans supporting James Graham, Marquis of Montrose (1612-50), during his successful campaigns of 1645 that has seen Archibald Campbell, 1st Marquis of Argyll (1607-61), humiliated.

Septs include MacAvoy, MacBay, MacCormack, MacFadyen, MacFetridge, MacGillivray, MacSpadden, MacVey, Beaton, Black, Douie, Paton, Peden.
