Brief Clan History

Of Irish origin, the clan became established in about 1200 on the shores of Loch Fyne, in Argyll, and the name stems from a Celtic term signifying sprung from a yew tree.

Known as the MacEwans of the Otter, they once held considerable influence, but gradually lost the bulks of their lands and came under the protection of the powerful Maclachlan Clan.

This clan was anciently known as the MacEwans of Otter, and a building known as MacEwens Castle stood near Kilfinan on the shore of Loch Fyne.

They were allied to the MacLachlans and the MacNeils, and in the 12th century owned part of Cowal. Ewen of Otter, from whom the clan takes its name, lived in the 13th century.

About 1432 the Campbells acquired Otter and thereafter the power of the MacEwens declined. The name was later found in other parts of Scotland. The MacEwens were hereditary bards to the Clan Campbell.
