Background: The lands of the Colquhouns lie on the shores of Loch Lomond. The name itself probably derived from the Gaelic ‘cuil chumhann’ – ‘narrow corner’. Umphredus de Kilpatrick received from Malduin, Earl of Lennox, the estates of Auchentorily, Dumbuck and Colquhoun during the reign of Alexander II. The chief’s early stronghold was Dunglas Castle, near the royal castle of Dumbarton. Later chiefs of Colquhoun were to be appointed governors and keepers of Dumbarton Castle.

Variations: Colquhoun, Cowan, Cowen, Culchone, Ingram, Kilpatrick, King, Kirkpatrick, Laing, MacAchounich, MacClintock, MacCowan, MacLinden, MacLintock, MacMains, MacManus, MacOwan

A Cowan is here! (The call of the clan gathering more or less) I live in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex in Texas. We don't really have your clan close by. My son Aiden and I are members of McDonald of Texas.
