MacLennan History

The Logan name is found to have been used by two distinct families, one in the Highlands and one in the Lowlands. Translated into Gaelic and back again the ‘Logans of the North’ became ‘Siol Ghilli’nnein’ which becomes MacClennan.

These Northern Logans are said to have been the descendants of the Logans of Druimdeurfait, in Easter Ross.
