Origin: There are claims that the Robertsons are the oldest documented clan in Scottish history, descended from the Celtic Earls of Atholl, who in turn were from a line of the kings of Dalriada. Conan, the second son of Henry, 3rd Earl of Atholl inherited extensive lands including Glenorchie. His descendant, Duncan, was the first chief of the Clan Donnachaidh. When surnames began to emerge, they adopted Robertson of Struan from Robert, the 4th chief. (Others adopted names such as Duncanson, MacConochie, Collier and Reid). Robert obtained a charter for his lands in 1451. Other Robertson families were Robertson of Lude and Robertson of Straloch. The first recorded Robertson was in 1371 but his origins are unknown.

The Robertsons were loyal to Robert the Bruce and to the Stewart kings - Alastair the 17th chief took up arms for the Stewarts in 1689, was pardoned in 1703 but took part in both the 1715 and 1745 Jacobite Uprisings.

There are Robertsons in many parts of Scotland with a concentration in Dundee and Perth. It is the fifth most common name in Scotland. The present chief is Alexander Haldane Robertson and there is a Clan Museum between Blair Atholl and Struan.

The clan motto is "Virtutis gloria merces" ("Glory is the reward of valour").
