Fascinating history behind Macgregor Clan Tartan Lumbar Pillow. “The MacGregor story is one of dogged survival and endurance in appalling conditions. History calls them the Children of the Mist. For nearly two centuries Clan MacGregor was a victim of Proscription. This meant that male MacGregors could not use their surname, own property or even, in the worst times, possess a knife. They were legally hunted down and tortured or beheaded, often by Campbells. Despite such catastrophic fortune, the MacGregor name survived, and today they flourish.” Stewart Borland Published - June19, 2015
Fun Fact – the Clan is also known to have been among the first families of Scotland to begin playing the bagpipes in the early 17th century.
