Clan MacThomasClan MacThomas Tartan

Chief: Andrew P.C. MacThomas of Finegand


The Clan takes it’s name from Thomas, known in Gaelic as Tomaidh Mor (big Tommy) who was a descendant of the Clan Chattan Mackintoshes, his Grandfather being a son of William 8th Chief of Clan Chattan. Thomas lived in the 15th century at a time when the Clan Chattan Confederation was becoming large and unmanageable and so he took his kinsmen and followers across the Grampians from Badenoch to Glenshee where they settled and flourished being known as McComie, McColm and MacComas.
