Daily Images | Clan MacNab

Daily Images – the founder of the Clan Macnab is said to have belonged to the clerical profession. In Gaelic, Mac an Aba means “the son of abbot”. He is said to have been Abbot of Glendochart. The title Mac an Aba eventually became one of four variations used today: “MacNabb”, “McNabb”, “Macnab” or “McNab”.  Clan Macnab is often said to have been a branch of the Clan MacDonald. However a bond of manrent exists to say that the Clan Macnab was an ally of the Clan Mackinnon and the Clan Gregor. The current village of Killin, on the shores of Loch Tay, is the traditional homeland of the Clan Macnab.
