  Culcreuch Castle
In Fintry, Stirlingshire Scotland it is now a hotel but once was the ancestral home of Clan Galbraith; built in 1296. This castle replaced the clan stronghold of Inchgalbraith in Loch Lomond. Other Galbraith castles included Gartconnel, Balgair, Balvie, Bannachra, Bardowie, Barskimming, Craigmaddie, Garscadden, Mains, as well as Kincaid House. All were located between Stirling and Glasgow.

The Clan Galbraith Society (CGS, formerly the Clan Galbraith Association - CGA), is actively seeking members interested in their Galbraith family history and Scottish customs.
We are a worldwide family with diverse interests bound together by our Scottish heritage.
The name Galbraith is reportedly from the Gaelic words “Clan-a-Bhreatannich” or “children of the foreigner Briton”. Our newsletter title 'The Red Tower', was taken from ancient verse, which was translated to the following:

Galbraith of the Red Tower
Noblest of the Albannic Race,
thy pedigree

The Red Tower is recognized as referring to Dumbarton Castle, former seat of the Royal House of Strathclyde.

All interested male Galbraiths (or other spellings) are invited to join us in our Galbraith surname Y-DNA project.

Free or subsidized Y-DNA tests for males with the Galbraith name may be available depending on your Galbraith lineage. Autosomal tests for both men & women may also be subsidized in certain circumstances. 3 years free membership may also given to those testing their Y-DNA with us. (conditions apply)
