THIS PAGE WAS CREATED BACK WHEN THE WEB WAS YOUNG.
I’VE MOVED IT OVER TO MY BLOG PAGES AS AN ARCHIVE MAINLY FOR INFORMATION, SO SOME OF THE LINKS MAY NO LONGER WORK, LET GOOGLE BE YOUR FRIEND….
Welcome to the wonderful world of the Clan McClelland. I receive many e-mail messages asking about the family name and many McClelland’s wonder if we might be related. Well we may be, but it most likely goes back a long way.
As any proud McClelland knows, the family name is pretty ancient and originates from the MacLellan clan in bonnie Scotland… which traces it’s roots from various relationships to Saint Fhaolain, a high born son of St. Kentigerna and Ferdach, King of Dalriada in Ireland. There are many variations on the spelling too – anything from my own McClelland, to M’Kilikin, Makellane, M’lleolan and Gillephillane.
Now, I’m no historian, but I do have an interest in the family name and there are many resources available on the internet for anyone wanting to find out more.
The links I have collected here are a starting point. Web search engines will lead you to many more. If you are a McClelland and want to be added to these listings, let me know. And please tell me if you find any good sites I might have missed. The address is Webmaster@McClellandMedia.com

McClelland Businesses & Places
- McClelland’s Single Malt Scotch Whisky
From their web site: “T&A McClelland’s was a Glasgow based whisky blending and export firm established in 1818. The company was purchased in 1970 by Stanley P Morrison (later to become Morrison Bowmore Distillers) and to this day many of the T&A McClelland’s malt whisky brands are still produced and distributed on a global scale.
The McClelland’s range offers a chance to explore Scotland and four of the key whisky distilling regions. The McClelland’s Single Malt Whisky range was first launched in 1986 with an Islay, Highland and Lowland expression. Due to its success and demand, a Speyside expression was introduced in 1999.
Each Single Malt expression is carefully selected to reflect the true essence and character of the region in which it is produced. The packaging reflects the key elements of the region with stunning landscapes by British illustrator Kathy Wyatt.”
