A Pictorial  journey to the original Clan Gregor Country

  By the beginning of the 16th century, there were five main  MacGregor geographical districts, in valleys (Glens):  Glen Dochart, Glen Orchy, Glen Lyon, Glen Strae, and Glen Gyle.  There were also adjacent areas where the Gregor clan was prevalent.

The beautiful Trossach region, where Rob Roy's guerrilla's harrassed English troops during the first Jacobite rebellion.
The Trossachs in the Southern fringe of MacGregor country.  Rob Roy hid in wild places like this and exacted his revenge on the Duke of Montrose by intercepting the Duke's collectors and driving off his cattle.   The only fort in the region, Inversnaid, was established to subdue the Clan Gregor.  It was captured and destroyed by Rob Roy's son, James Mhor MacGregor, during the '45 uprising.

Lanrick Castle, hauntingly beautiful and decrepid
Lanrick Castle, known also as "MacGregor House"served as the seat of the Clan Gregor until 1830.  It was illegally demolished by a real estate developer in 2002.  The Stirling Municipal authorities did nothing to prevent it, or to condemn this heinous crime.
