Brief Clan History

The clan takes its name from the lands of Colquhoun, in Dunbartonshire, that were granted to one its ancestors by Alexander III in 1241.

The lands of Luss, on the shores of Loch Lomond, were acquired more than a hundred years later, and the clan was for centuries engaged in bitter warfare with the MacGregors.

After a desperate battle with the MacGregors in 1602 the Colquhouns sought to trap the MacGregors but were defeated and their chief killed.

Following this affair the MacGregors were proscribed and their name forbidden under pain of death.

Sir John Colquhoun, known as the Black Cock of the West was an able and learned politician.

In the first instance we recommend dry cleaning all wool products.

If you wish wash by hand or by machine please do not wring the item, or allow the item to float free in a washing machine. when using a machine always place your product in a pillow case so that it does not tangle or loose its shape.

By hand wash gently using luke warm water and when drying taking great care to ensure that the item is placed flat on a towel for it to dry. This way the product will keep its shape and its softness, and look as new as when first bought.
Always use a recommended wool detergent ie Woolite.
