Docherty Clan Book
Heirs to a heritage that stretches back through the mists of time to the High Kings of Ireland and the royal race of MacGregors, generations of bearers of the Docherty name have taken centre stage in the bloodthirsty drama that is Scotland’s history.
With their main territories the MacGregor homelands of the eastern borders of Argyll, the western Borders of Perthshire and Loch Lomond, they were persecuted for centuries – but nevertheless fought for the cause of the Royal House of Stuart, while in later centuries many have achieved celebrity in a wide variety of other more peaceful pursuits.
On the football pitch, Tommy Docherty, or ‘the Doc’, is the former professional player and manager, born in Glasgow in 1928, who played for teams that include Celtic, Arsenal and Chelsea, while he is also the recipient of twenty-five full Scotland International Caps.
Presented here is the stirring saga of the Dochertys.
