He fought for King Malcolm II against the Danes and, as reward, was given the lands of Buchanan, to the east of Loch Lomond near Killearn in Stirlingshire. Two Gaelic names are given as the root of the placename Buchanan, Mac a Chanonaich (“the son of the canon”) and Buth Chanain (meaning “house or seat of the canon”).In 1225 another Anselan, recorded as Absalom of Buchanan, was granted lands in Buchanan by Maldouen, Earl of Lennox (d. 1250). And in 1231, King Alexander II (1214–49) made a charter awarding other lands in Buchanan to Gilbert, Seneschal (an administrative officer in the houses of important nobles) of the Earl of Lennox. The Buchanans supported King Robert the Bruce during the Wars of Independence. They fought at the battles of Flodden, Pinkie and Langside. The clan prospered in the time of David II in the 14th century, however, towards the end of the 17th century the house and lands of Buchanan were sold to the Marquess of Montrose, Chief of Clan Graham.Reproduction tartans are also sometimes called “weathered” or “muted”. The tartan itself is identical to the tartan of that clan name, but the colours are “muted” because they have been reproduced to match pieces of cloth, found in homesteads and battlefields, that have been weathered by exposure to the Scottish climate.
