The Stewarts who became monarchs of Scotland were descended from a family who were seneschhals of Dol in Brittany, France. The Clans included the Albany Stewarts who were a branch that held the Dukedom of Albany which was bestowed on Sons of Scottish and later the British Royal Family. Apart from the Royal House of Stewart, the three main brances of the clan had settled in the Scottish Highlands during the 14th and 15th centuries. They were the Stewarts of Appin, Stewarts of Atholl and Stewarts of Balquhidder. The Stuarts of Bute were descendants of Robert ll of Scotland.
Membership provides an opportunity for Clan members to unite and reunite in friendship. We share a common love of family and Scottish heritage.  It connects us to fellow clansmen and we join in a celebration of our history. We follow and participate in activities of other Clans nationally and internationally. We keep a calender of activities up-to-date on the website. We hope you will join us as well in celebration.
