About the Macrae surname

Versions of the name Macrae appear in both Scotland and Ireland. DNA results have found them in SW Ireland, NW Ireland, and various areas of Scotland. The Scottish Highland Clan of Macraes first settled at Clunes, near Beauly, Inverness-shire, Scotland. In the 14th century a branch settled at Kintail in Ross-shire and became constables of Eilean Donan castle. In the ensuing years, members of this Highland clan, have scattered throughout the globe.
