Clan Davidson

Clan Davidson is a Highland Scottish clan and a member of the Chattan Confederation. According to William Skene, in his Celtic Scotland, Clan Davidson co-founded the Chattan Confederation with Clan MacPherson and are together referred to as Old Clan Chattan. Skene used sources that show the Davidsons to be descended from one of the sons of Gilliecattan Mhor; chief of Clan Chattan in the 11th to 12th century.
