Angus Robertson Macgillivray Gravestone Western Cemetery Dundee Scotland [01:07]
Tour Scotland video of the Dr Angus Robertson Macgillivray gravestone on visit to the Western Cemetery in Dundee. Angus, born 1892, died 1955, was an Ophthalmic surgeon in Dundee. During the 1930s he laid claim to the Chieftainship of the Clan MacGillivray His claim was based on his family's connection to the Lagg and Balnain townships on the Dunmaglass estate. His grandfather William was alive during the estate litigations of the 1850s, but, owing to the loss of family papers and prohibitive costs of entering the legal fray, was unable to assert his case at the time. Dr. Angus was the first MacGillivray of the 20th century to officially matriculate personal arms with Lord Lyon, and these were based very closely on designs found on armorial gravestones that can still be seen at the burial ground of the Strathnairn MacGillivrays at Dunlichity Church. However, he was hampered by the same lack of documentation that faced his grandfather and thus was never able to satisfy Lord Lyon's stringent requirements for recognition as Chief.
