Notes for Angus MacIntosh:
"At Bannockburn I served the Bruce,
Of whilk the Inglis had na russ."
Angus, often called Angus mac Fearchard (i.e., Angus, son of Farquhar), sixth Chief of Clan MacIntosh, was born in 1268, and died in 1345. In 1291-2 he married Eva, the daughter and heiress of Gillipatrick, the son of Dugall Dall, who was the son of Gillichattan-Mor, the founder of Clan Chattan (pronounced Kattan). By her he acquired the lands of Locharkeg, Glenluy and Strathlocie, which remained with the family until sold to Lochiel in 1665.
By this marriage he also acquired the station of Captain, or leader of Clan Chattan, which was the most powerful of the Highland Clans, being composed of the MacPherson, MacGillivray, MacQueen, Clark, Davidson, Elder, and several other clans.
Each clan had their own tartan and war cry, but still wore the Suaich-eantas, or badge of Clan Chattan---Lus na'n Craim-sheag na Bra-oi-laig, the red whortleberry (vaccinium vitis idea).
Angus was a chief of great activity, and a staunch supporter of King Robert, the Bruce, with whom he took part in the famous battle of Bannockburn June 11, 1314, where the sturdy Scotts, with an army of not over 40,000 men (a number of historians say 30,000), completely routed Edward III with a vast army of over 100,000, and thus virtually secured Scottish independence.
Through my own investigation the English mustered 20,000 men and King Robert, the Bruce had 6,000. This from the book "History of Scotland" by Cliff Hanley.
