Scottish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Artair, ‘son of Arthur’ (see Arthur ).
History: Clan Arthur is a Highland Scottish clan traditionally associated with lands on the northern shores of Loch Awe. In 1427 the chief of the clan was one of several Highland chiefs executed for treason by King James I; it is said that the clan never recovered. As a matter of fact, there were several different Highland families and septs of other clans bearing the name Mac Artair.
