History of the Clan Macrae


Campbells of Craignish said to be of Macrae Origin

(Previously: Migration to Kintail, in which Macrae of Clunes has three sons who leave home.  One settled in Brahan.)

Another of the sons of Macrae of Clunes went to Argyleshire, where he married the heiress of Craignish.  His successors afterwards adopted the name Campbell, and maintained a friendly intercourse with the Macraes of Kintail for many generations.  A contract of friendship, drawn up between the Campbells of Craignish and the Macraes of Kintail about two hundred years ago, has been kept in the family of Macrae of Inverinate ever since, and [was in 1899] in the possession of Horatio Ross Macrae, Esc. of Clunes.1
