Territory of the Buchanan clan:
The origin of the clan has been traced to Anselan o Kyan, son of a king of Ulster, who landed in Argyll about 1016. This ancient clan takes its name from the lands of Buchanan in Stirlingshire and for centuries the Buchanans held extensive possessions in the Loch Lomond district. Earlier branches having become extinct , the chiefship of the clan passed to the Buchanans of Leny.
