Clan Gunn or Gunn Clan
The Clan Gunn motto
Either Peace or War
Clan Gunn is one of the oldest and most northerly clans in Scotland. The Gunns once held extensive territory in Caithness, NWSutherland and SESutherland. They were a Norse family claiming descent from Olaf the Black and were noted for their ferocious and war-like character; their name comes from the Norse gunnr, meaning war. They were constantly warring with their Keith and Mackay neighbours, or so the story goes!
