Clan Grant's recorded history dates from the mid-13th century, when Sir Laurence de Grant was Sheriff of Inverness. The family, over the centuries, added to their original Speyside lands, centred on Grantown-on-Spey and Castle Grant, until the Clan territory stretched from Aberdeen in the east, Banff and Elgin in the north and over to the west shore of Loch Ness. Southwards they controlled the wild slopes of the Cairngorm massif around Aviemore, now a famous ski-resort, where their summoning beacon was lighted on Craig Elachie (rock of alarm).
