Clan MacFarlane (Scots Gaelic: Clann Mhic Phàrlain) is a Highland Scottish clan. War Cry: " Loch Slòigh " (" The Loch of the Host"). Badge: Muileag (Cranberry), Oireag or Foighreag (Cloudberry). Descended from the ancient Celtic Earls of Lennox, the MacFarlanes occupied the land forming the western shore of Loch Lomond from Tarbet up-wards. From Loch Sloy, a small sheet of water near the foot of Ben Voirlich, they took their war cry of Loch Slòigh. The ancestor of the clan was Gilchrist, brother of Maldowen, the third Earl of Lennox. Gilchrist's grandson was Bartholomew, which in Gaelic is Parlan, from whom the clan are designed—the letters " Ph " in MacPhàrlain sounding like F in Gaelic. Note that Mac or Mhic translates to " Son of " Making the full anglicised translation of MacFarlane " Son of Bartholomew ".
