Grant of Glenmoriston

James Logan's "The Clans of the Scottish Highlands" was published to celebrate the centenary of the 1745 Jacobite Rising. It was illustrated by Robert R McIan.

The Grants of Glenmoriston are descended from John More Grant, son of John Grant, 9th laird of Freuchie. His son John Roy Grant acquired the lands of Carron in Speyside from the Marquis of Huntly. In 1588, in a dispute over land, he killed his kinsman John Grant of Ballindalloch, an event which led to a lasting feud between the families.

Although most branches of Clan Grant supported the Hanoverians, the Glenmoriston branch supported the Stewart cause. Patrick Grant of Glenmoriston fought in Viscount Dundee's army at Killiecrankie. He was also involved in the skirmish at Cromdale against the government and in the battle of Sheriffmuir in 1715. As a result, his estate was forfeited but was restored through the intervention of the chief of the Grants. The laird of Glenmoriston in 1745 also fought on the Jacobite side but the estate remained in the family
