Origin of Name: Gaelic, MacShuibhne (Son of the good going)

From the gaelic ‘Mac Shuibhe’ or ‘son of Sweyn’, the MacSween clan claim kinship with the Irish high kings, of the same descent as the great clan Donald. A number of MacQueens are said to have provided an escort at the marriage between the daughter of the clan Ranald and the chief of clan MacKintosh. After this union took place, many of them did not return to their homelands but chose to settle around the Findhorn valley. This branch of the family, known as clan Revan became part of the great federation of clans known as Clan Chattan and by the sixteenth century they were in possession of the lands of Corrybrough. They became a prominent and important family of the district.
