Clan History

strachan_hist_imgStrachan History

The name Strachan derives from the lands of Strachan or Strathachan in Kinkardineshire. The earliest mention of the clan is in 1200 when Walderus de Stratheihen granted lands to the church of St Andrews.
In 1278 a charter of Alexander III confirms that John de Strachane (son of Rudolph de Strachane) gave lands to the Abbey of Dunfermline.
