The Inauguration is a significant historic event that, after more than 300 years, Lord Lyon has identified J. Michael Baillie-Hamilton Buchanan as the new Hereditary Clan Chief following on from the last Buchanan Clan Chief who died in 1682.

On 7th to the 10th October 2022, Clan Buchanan hosted their important and significant historic event in Callander, Scotland recognising the Buchanan, Michael Baillie-Hamilton Buchanan, as the Clan Chief.

Dr Peter Carruthers of Holmains, Chief of the Name and Arms of Carruthers was in attendance as a personal guest of the Buchanan.

Also on pages 74-75 is the advert for the Scotland Shop which is in the process of adding Carruthers to its clan listings, as well as supplying the clan tartan to the general public.
