In times of trouble the clan would meet on the shores of Loch Lomond opposite the Island of Clairinch. The rallying cry of the Clan Buchanan is Clairinch.

When the estates of Buchanan were lost they were purchased by the Graham Family ( Duke of Montrose ).
In the 1930's a wealthy Clansman William George Buchanan of the family of Drummakill purchased Clairinch from the Montrose estate and on his death in 1939 gifted the island to The Buchanan Society of Glasgow where it remains to this day.
