A Brief History of Clan Cameron of Erracht
The Camerons of Erracht were a minor noble branch of Clan Cameron and therefore share the same Clan motto which is "Aonaibh Ri Chéile", which means "Unite" or "Let Us Unite".
The first of the Cameron of Erracht line was Ewen Cameron who was born in the late 15th century and was the son of Ewen Cameron, XIII of Lochiel, chief of Clan Cameron. The Cameron of Erracht family were referred to as “Sliochd Eoghainn'ic Eoghainn” which was Gaelic for “the children of Ewan”.
During the Battle of Culloden, Donald Cameron, the second Laird of Erracht, was second in command of the Camerons. After the battle, Donald Cameron wandered the highlands for three years in an effort to avoid being caught and punished by the British government. Eventually, he went on to marry Marjory MacLean of Drimnin in Morven. His marriage produced the famous Sir Alan Cameron who was a Scottish soldier who, at his own expense in 1793, raised the 79th Regiment of Foot (Cameron Highlanders).
The Cameron of Erracht tartans is available in Modern, Ancient, Weathered and Muted variations. The tartans feature reds, greens, yellows and blues with the exception of the weathered which includes a brown and has slightly lighter tones.
