Oban man’s clan mis­sion

The Oban Times - - Front Page -

AN Oban man named MacGil­livray is ready to fight for his un­cle’s right to be­come clan chief, when he dis­cov­ered the role was va­cant.

Gor­don MacGil­livray, who runs a fish stall on Oban pier, says his un­cle, Robert Gal­braith MacGil­livray, 84, is ‘the real deal’ and should be put into the role ‘im­me­di­ately.’

Although the MacGil­livray clan is with­out a chief, it will gather at In­ver­ness next week to learn how to find a new head.

Clan MacGil­livray, whose most fa­mous chief was killed in bat­tle at Cul­lo­den, has searched the world but has still to find a can­di­date who will sat­isfy Scot­land’s Lord Lyon King of Arms, who con­fers the ti­tle of clan chief.

Mr MacGil­livray said: ‘Peo­ple all over the place treat my un­cle like a king, and he knows the clan mem­bers in­side out.’
