The Cameron clan, known as Clan Camshron or Clann Sheumais in Scottish Gaelic, is believed to have originated in the Scottish Highlands. The clan’s name is derived from the Gaelic term “cam shr�n,” meaning “crooked nose.” Legend has it that the first chief of the clan, Donald Dubh, earned the name due to a wound on his nose sustained in battle. The Cameron clan’s traditional seat was Achnacarry Castle, located near Loch Lochy. The castle served as the residence of the chiefs of Clan Cameron for centuries. Today, Achnacarry Castle is known for hosting the Commando Training Centre during World War II.
