  • What is the origin of macpherson tartan?

    The surname of this clan originates from Duncan, Parson of Kingussie, in the 15th century, himself a descendant of Muriach Cattenach, Chief of Clan Chattan in 1173. During the mid-14th century, Ewan Ban of Badenoch had three sons, and these are regarded as the ancestors of the Macphersons of Clunie, Pitmain, and Invereshie.
    This is a name derived from the gaelic Macaphersein, meaning “Son of the Parson”. The clan itself is reputed to have been founded by Murdo Cattenach, a priest of Kingussie in Badenoch.
