The Drummond Clan traces their lineage back to Maurice, a grandson of a King of Hungary.  Maurice conveyed Princess Margaret of England to the court of King Malcolm Canmore of Scotland, in the year 1066.  When Malcolm married Margaret shortly afterwards, he rewarded Maurice with extensive lands around the village of Drymen from whence the Clan derive their name. Drymen is a very picturesque spot and the lands run onto the edge of beautiful Loch Lomond.

The first of the name to appear in the written records of Scotland is Gilbert Drummond, who witnessed a charter in the area in 1199. The first Chief who appears in the records is Malcolm Drummond in 1225 who married Ada, daughter of the powerful Earl of Lennox.

When King Edward 1 of England invaded and tried to subdue Scotland,  Sir John Drummond, Thane of Lennox and one of the greatest Barons in the kingdom, joined with William Wallace and Robert the Bruce in fighting for liberty against the invaders. The final battle took place at Bannockburn in 1314, where the Scots were greatly outnumbered by the English army. Sir John’s son, Malcolm and his Clansmen reduced the effectiveness of the English heavy cavalry by sowing caltrops,  (anti-horse spikes) which disrupted their charge and greatly contributed to the Scottish victory on that day. The clan motto “Gang Warily” (go carefully) refers to that action, as do the caltrops on a field that appear on the Drummond standard.  For his support in the long campaign and his action at Bannockburn, King Robert Bruce rewarded Sir Malcolm with valuable lands in Perthshire, Central Scotland.

Through marriage, the Drummonds increased their landholdings throughout Scotland and in 1336, the residence of the family was transferred from Drymen, where the Chiefs had lived for over  two hundred years to Stobhall in Perthshire.  It was around this time that the Drummonds built Drummond Castle at Concraig. It is now the seat of Drummond- Willoughby, the Earl of Ancaster.

The Drummonds have been prominent throughout history. James Drummond 4th Earl of Perth was elevated to Duke of Perth by King James 7th at the end of the seventeenth Century and his ancestors were ardent Jacobites thereafter. His son James, the 2nd Duke fought against the Government troops during the uprising in 1715 and was forced to flee into exile in France. James the 3rd Earl returned from France to Drummond Castle and led the Drummond Clansmen for Prince Charles Edward Stuart. Never one to lead from behind, he died from wounds received during the Battle of Culloden in 1745. For their part in the uprisings the property and titles of the Drummonds were forfeited but later restored by Act of Parliament to George Drummond in 1853, who was also a French Baron. A Drummond has been the Duke of Perth to the present day.
