Old Photograph Inversanda Ardgour Scotland

Old photograph of Inversanda in Ardgour, Scotland. This area has formed part of the territory of the Clan MacLean ever since the Clan MacMaster was removed from the territory in the 15th century. In the late 17th century the massacre of the MacDonald clansmen marked the point when the fortunes of the MacLean clan began to wane, and by 1691 the Campbells had gained possession of most of the MacLean estates. Clan Maclean participated in the Jacobite risings of 1745 to 1746, supporting the House of Stuart and the Jacobite cause. Many members of the clan were killed fighting at the Battle of Culloden. Many MacLeans dispersed to other countries such as Canada, the United States, Australia and New Zealand.
