The Brooch as an Iconic Jewel

The Brooch of Lorn is an iconic jewel for the Clan MacDougall, symbolising the height of their power in the 13th and early 14th centuries.

It also represents the moment when the Clan came within a hairs breadth of bringing down Robert the Bruce and changing the course of Scottish history.
