Clan Douglas

Clans
Thornhill
Dumfries & Galloway

Clan Douglas is an ancient family from the Scottish Lowlands and was once one of the most powerful families in Scotland. The name itself is said to come from the Gaelic dubhghlais meaning ‘black water’. The clan’s traditional heartlands are mainly in Lowland Scotland – Lanarkshire and Dumfries & Galloway – as well as Angus further north. The clan does not currently have a chief, therefore it is considered an armigerous clan. The Lanarkshire Douglases came to be known as the ‘Black Douglases’ whereas those from Angus became known as the ‘Red Douglases’.
