The Dalmore™

The real test of courage is how someone reacts when faced with true danger. A moment arose in 1263 that would test the mettle of every man in a hunting party that accompanied King Alexander III of Scotland. During the hunt, a stag charged at the King, and of all the men there only one acted, Colin of Kintail, Chief of the Clan Mackenzie. He speared the stag in its forehead, crying out 'Cuidich 'n' Righ', Gaelic for 'Save the King' as he struck. The act of saving King Alexander III's life would prove to be a defining moment for Colin of Kintail, the Clan Mackenzie and in the history of The Dalmore. The saying 'fortune favours the brave' has never been truer than for Colin of Kintail. As a sign of gratitude for saving his life, King Alexander III awarded him the lands of Eilean Donan and the motto 'Luceo Non Uro', which translates to 'I Shine, Not Burn'. But most importantly Colin of Kintail and his Mackenzie clan were given the right to bear a 12-pointed Royal Stag as their crest.
