As a Clan without a Chief, it falls to the Armigerous gentlemen of the Clan to make up the Council or “Derbhfine” for the better management of the Clan and its business.  Below are the individuals who have had formal recognition from the Sovereign through the granting of, or matriculation of Armorial bearings by the Lord Lyon King of Arms in the dispensation of the ‘Royal Prerogative’ so invested in him.
