Eachdraidh Logan

Tha Clann Logan le chèile..

The original seat of the Logans in the north seems to have been Druimanairig in Wester Ross.
The Logans in the Highlands are often linked to the MacLennans
due to a colourful (but unreliable) legend about a chief of the Logans in Easter Ross
who was killed in a feud with the Frasers. His wife gave birth to a child a few months
 later who later became a priest. His son was named Gillie Fhinnein
(disciple of St Finnan) and MacLennan is the anglicised version of this name.

A Highland Clan

Highland Logans

The seat of these Logans was Lochend castle, restalrig, near Edinburgh.

 

Lowland Logans descends from Sir Robert Logan of Restalrig who married a daughter of Robert II and, in 1400, became Admiral of Scotland. 

 Clan Logan is known for the Heart of the king, which also appears in our crest. In 1330 brothers Sir Robert Logan of Restalrig and Sir Walter Logan; along with Sir William de Keith, Sir William de St. Clair of Rosslyn; accompanied Sir James Douglas in his quest to take the heart of the dead King Robert 1 of Scotland to the Holy Land

 

Douglas and his company had been received by Alfonso IX of Castile, who campaigning against the Moors, in the Kingdom of Granada. Near the Castillo de la Estrella, Alfonso's army fought the Saracens at the Battle of Teba. During the battle Douglas observed a knight of his company surrounded by Moorish warriors, and with his remaining men attempted to relieve his countryman. As the knights were hard pressed and outnumbered by the Moors, Sir James Douglas took the silver casket containing the heart of Robert Bruce, and threw it before him among the enemy, saying, "Now pass thou onward before us, as thou wert wont, and I will follow thee or die." Sir James Douglas and most of his men were slain, among them Sir Robert Logan and Sir Walter Logan.
