The Clan MacArthur is one of the oldest of Argyll and its age is referred to in the proverb, "There is nothing older, unless the hills, MacArthur and the devil". The MacArthurs themselves claim descent from Arthur, that early resistance fighter who may have fought against the expansionist English for the Scots.

From the Strachur line, John MacArthur emigrated to Australia in 1790 and, crossing Bengal and Merino with Irish sheep was instrumental in creating the Australian wool industry.  In America, General Arthur MacArthur became a Lieutenant General in 1906, the twelfth officer in the US Army to attain this rank. His son was the equally distinguished General Douglas MacArthur (1880 - 1964).
