Description

EVERY weekend, Carl MacDougall, will tell the story of one of Scotland's famous Clans. This weekend, we take a look at the Gordon Clan.

The Gordons are thought to have come from France and settled in Berwickshire in the 11th century.

Malcolm Canmore gave the lands around what is now the village of Gordon to Adam Gordon, who, with the help of other French, Norman and English knights defeated MacBeth at Lumphanan, near Aboyne in Aberdeenshire in 1057.

This is where MacBeth was killed and buried before being reinterred in Iona.
