The 1st Marquis of Montrose Society was formed in 1995 and was the inspiration of Alan Macpherson Yr. of Cluny.
A passionate and informative follower of Montrose for many years Alan recognised that, despite being one of Scotland's most noble and militarily gifted leaders, the fascinating exploits of James Graham the 1st Marquis were little recognised.
The main aim of the society is to take every opportunity to promote the name of the 1st Marquis and to attempt to raise public awareness of both him and the impact which he had on Scotland during the civil war period.
To this end the society is active in not only raising the profile of James Graham, but also in attempting to get many of the important sites associated with the 1st Marquis better recognised.
