Clan Chattan group

The Clan Chattan name comes from its first chief, Gillichattan Mor, meaning "the great servant of St. Catan", whose abbey was situated at Kilchattan on the island of Bute in the Firth of Clyde. Until the 20th century, the chief of the MacKintoshes was also head of Clan Chattan. In 1938 the two chiefships became separated after the 28th MacKintosh chief (also the 29th Chattan chief) died without a male heir. Since 1947 the chiefs of the MacKintoshes of Daviot, Inverness-shire, have been recognised as the head of Clan Chattan
