Clan Chattan Tartan

The Clan of the Cats is a confederation of clans and families drawn together for mutual protection. The clan name most probably comes from its first chief, Gillichattan Mor, meaning "great servant of St. Catan", whose abbey was situated at Kilchattan on the Isle of Bute in the Firth of Clyde.
