Scotland's Clans

Scotland's Clans - Clan Armstrong
Clan Armstrong. Paul Murton reveals the turbulent history of the families who lived on the border with England and the raiding tradition that was part of this violent society.

Scotland's Clans - Clan Hamilton
The Hamiltons have been one of Scotland's most famous lowland clans and one of her greatest families - from the Wars of Independence right through to the Second World War. But did they act for the good of Scotland or the good of the Hamiltons?

Scotland's Clans - Leslie
The untold story of how the Leslies played a major role in shaping modern Europe.
From as early as the Crusades the Leslies made their name as warriors. Many of them left Scotland seeking fame, fortune and glory, including Walter Leslie, who left behind his modest roots in Aberdeenshire and ended up a Count of the Holy Roman Empire, and Alexander Leslie, who also left Scotland with nothing, to fight in the Swedish Army, and became one of Europe's greatest generals.

Scotland's Clans - Scott
The Scotts were once just an ordinary Borders family. Today, they have become one of the greatest private landowners in Britain - with thousands of acres of land, four major castles and a vast art collection. They won all this not through battlefield prowess, but through the canny determination of one of the most remarkable women in Clan history.
Anna Scott was no more than a girl when she became the Duchess of Buccleuch in the mid-17th century. Her marriage to the son of Charles II propelled the Scotts into the first rank of British nobility - but it very nearly ended in disaster.
The story of the Scotts' journey from reivers to royalty.

Scotland's Clans - MacNeil
A clan on the very edge of Scotland, the MacNeils of Barra were notorious pirates who exploited their superb knowledge of the sea. Taking over from where the Vikings left off, the MacNeils carried on the great Highland tradition of raiding and were a law unto themselves. The story of the MacNeils from the culture they shared with the Vikings, through piracy, shipwreck and seaweed - to their decline in the 19th century.

Scotland's Clans - Robertson
Alexander Robertson of Struan was a legend in his own lifetime. As the thirteenth and last chief of his clan, he was the only Scot to have fought in all three Jacobite rebellions of the 17th and 18th centuries - and the only one to have published pornographic and political Gaelic verse.
This self-styled romantic hero single-handedly tried to restore the reputation of his clan while living the life of a rebel. But his unwavering support for the Jacobite cause cost this highland chief most of his ancestral lands.
The story of Alexander, the so-called poet chief, tracing the rise and fall of a clan that mythologised its own importance as the world around them changed.

Scotland's Clans - Cameron
Paul Murton travels to the highlands to retrace the dramatic story of Clan Cameron, who sacrificed everything for the Jacobite cause and paid the ultimate price for their loyalty to Bonnie Prince Charlie.

Scotland's Clans - Maclean
The Clan MacLean were know as mercenaries for hire. Paul Murton explores this, their tools of the trade and even tries his hand at employing their sword skills.
