Clan MacFarlane History According to The Scottish Nation

As printed in "The Scottish Nation, or, The surnames, families, literature, ... Volumn II" 1877

 

MacFarlane, the name of a clan descended from the ancient earls of the Lennox, the distinctive badge of which was the cypress. In ancient times the land forming the western shore of Loch Lomond, from Tarbet upwards, and the greater part of the parish of Arrochar, was inhabited by "the wild Macfarlane's plaided clan." From Loch Sloy, a small lake near the base of Ben Voirlich, which formed their gathering place, they took their slughorn or warcry of "Loch Sloy! Loch Sloy!" In Gaelic Loch Sluai signifies "the Lake of the host or army"

The early history of the Clan Macfarlane is so interlinked with the House of the ancient Earls of Lennox that the history of one family is practically the history of the other, until the extinction of the line with the eighth earl of the original House of Lennox.
