By signing up, you will receive and email with a PDF version of the 1587 Act of the Scottish Parliament commonly referred to as the 'Roll of the Clans', as well as other informative emails to assist in your study of the clans of Scotland.  

The Roll of the Clans was not a comprehensive list of clans.  Rather, it was an identification of those clans, both in the Borders and Highlands, seen as more loyal to their chiefs than to their appointed political leaders.  It also contains a list of landlords who had men deemed as unruly and more responsive to their chiefs or captains than to the said landlord.  It's a great snapshot of the social landscape of the second half of the 16th century.
