The Armstrong Clan is a Scottish clan that originated in the border region between Scotland and England. The clan takes its name from the Old English personal name “Arnketill” combined with “strong,” indicating their reputation for strength and valor. The Armstrongs were renowned as a formidable riding and reiving clan, involved in cattle rustling and border skirmishes. They controlled large swathes of land along the border and played significant roles in conflicts between Scotland and England. However, their activities eventually led to clashes with the Scottish crown. Today, the Armstrong Clan celebrates its history and heritage.
