Clans & Armigerous Clans
The clans of the Standing Council of Scottish Chiefs are
those officially recognised by the Lord Lyon, have the right
to bear arms and have an acknowledged chief at their head.
Armigerous clans are also officially recognised by the
Lord Lyon, have the right to bear arms, but do not currently
have a chief. Their situation could change with the discovery
and acceptance of a chiefly line and consequent granting
of full Standing Council membership.
