Names and Addresses of Scottish Clan Chiefs


NOTE: Since this page was created (in 2011) some of the names and addresses will have changed. The Standing Council of Scottish Chiefs list of clan chief or representative is another source of names. It provides no addresses although there is a pro forma "enquiry" option which may (or may not) provide such information . Their site also has some links to clan societies but there is a more comprehensive listing (including clans not represented on the Standing Council) at Rampant Scotland - Clan Links.

Only chiefs of whole Names or Clans are included, except certain special instances who, though not chiefs of a whole name, were or are for some reason (e.g. the Macdonald forfeiture) independent. Under decision (Campbell-Gray, 1950) that a bearer of a double or triple-barrelled surname cannot be held chief of a part of such, several others cannot be included in the list at present.
