Crest: On a rock a castle triple towered masoned Proper ports and windows Gules thereon a raven statent Sable.

Matriculated: The Court of the Lord Lyon, the 26th July 2005, Lyon Register, volume 87 page 47.

These Arms reflect our association with the Clan Donald, most particularly, the Clanranald branch who descend from the same line as do the Glengarry branch. The Arms reflect elements from these branches, as does the crest. Elements from the Arms of other Allen/Allan families with Scottish Arms are also incorporated. The motto was an ingenious concept developed by Alistair Campbell of Airds, to mirror the Clan Donald motto and as well, to reflect my career in Special Operations, serving with US, UK and Australian units.
