Carnegie Tartan & Clan

In 1358 Walter de Maule made a grant of the lands and barony of Carnegie (derived from the Gaelic ‘cathair an eige’ – ‘fort at the gap’) lying in the parish of Carmylie, to John de Balinhard. The origin of the de Balinhards are uncertain, save that their lands were near Arbroath.
