The MacQuarrie Clan

Clan Motto: TURRIS FORTIS MIHI DEUS
Translation: GOD IS A STRONG TOWER TO ME

<p> Ulva and part of Mull was the ancient home of this clan. Originally vassals of the Lord of the Isles, they later followed MacLean of Duart. They were not a numerous clan and received a severe blow when their chief, Allan MacQuarrie, and most of the clansmen, were killed at the Battle of Inverkeithing in 1651. Lachlan MacQuarrie, 16th of Ulva, had to sell this estates. In 1788, at the age of 73, he entered the army. He died in 1818, at the age of 103. His cousin, Major General Lachlan MacQuarrie, who was Governor of New South Wales, was highly popular and MacQuarrie Island, in the Pacific, was named after him. Badge-Pine.<br></p>
