COUNCIL OF SCOTTISH ARMIGEROUS CLANS & FAMILIES  

 

The Council of Scottish Armigerous Clans and Families is a body consisting of the heads of individual Armigerous Families, one to represent each “Chiefless” Armigerous Clan. We exist to help member clans obtain official recognition as Clans, by the election or confirmation of a hereditary Chief by the Lord Lyon, King of Arms of Scotland.

Council members are elected by the other armigers of their respective Clans. Scots armigers who do not sit on the Council may join as 'Associate Members' and organisations or individuals may join as 'Supporting Members'. Please refer to the Membership page for more details.

For more information on the Council, please refer to the About the Council page.

The primary aims of the Council, as outlined in our Constitution, are as follows:

 

  The Royal Arms of Charles I Scotland 1634
 
The Royal Arms of Scotland

• To unite and represent Scots Armigers of Scottish Armigerous Clans and Families which do not have a Chief recognised by the Lord Lyon, King of Arms of Scotland for whatever reason.

• To support and advise those Scots Armigers of Armigerous Scottish Clans and Families and are actively seeking recognition as a Clan from the Lord Lyon, King of Arms through due legal process and to enter into dialogue with other bodies, such as the Standing Council of Scottish Chiefs and the Lyon Court, on the process relating to the recognition of clans where required.

• To consult and lobby on all matters affecting the official recognition of Scottish Clans.

• To take steps to protect the titles, honours, territorial designations, armorial bearings or other insignia of council members from misuse.

• To set standards of best practice amongst Council Members relating to adherence to the Law of Arms of Scotland, Clan customs and traditions and the promotion of active and well organised Clan and Family organisations.
