The Colquhoun Ancient tartan is green blended with blue and black, bearing thin white and red stripes.

The Colquhouns, a Lowland clan, took as a surname the name of the Dunbartonshire lands that they were granted in the time of Alexander II’s reign. The principal branch of the family is based in Luss at Loch Lomond. Their historic seat was at the now-ruined Dunglass Castle by the River Clyde in West Dunbartonshire. The Colquhouns also have a connection to Dumbarton Castle, which can still be visited, though little of the mediaeval structure remains. King James 1 is said to have asked John Colquhoun, 10th of Luss, if he would seize Dumbarton Castle. The chief is said to have replied in French Si Je Puis, which became the clan motto “If I can”. The chief’s clansmen did secure the castle. Since 1875, the Luss Highland Gathering has been held just outside the village, and the chief of Clan Colquhoun is the chieftain of the games.

Septs: Related septs of the clan include: Calhoun, Cowan, Ingram, Kilpatrick, King, Kirkpatrick, Laing, McCowan, McMain, McManus, McLintock, McOwan.
