Tartan Illustrated: Baillie Ancient
Motto: 'What Is Brighter Than The Stars'
Derived from the bailie or bailiff and not, as is believed by some, from Baliol. There are a number of prominent families of the name, notably those of Lamington, Polkemmet, Jerviswood and Dochfour. The Baillies of Dunain are believed to have been founded by a younger son of the house of Lamingron.
Through the marriage of Colonel James Baillie, Member of Parliament for Inverness, and Nellie Lisa Bass in 1894, the title of Baron Burton came into the Dochfour family.
