MacLaren Tartan & Clan

During the Jacobite rising of 1745, Donald MacLaren was captured by the English and was being taken to Carlisle to be tried. On the way there, MacLaren threw himself into the Moffat Beef-tub (also known as the Devil's Beef-tub), a deep gorge near Moffat in the Scottish Borders. After making his escape, MacLaren lived as an outlaw in the Stirlingshire countryside until 1757 when an amnesty was announced.
