The Leith Buchanan Family were the owners of Ross Priory at Gartocharn on the shores of Loch Lomond. The Buchanan Family had been associated with this area since the 11th century, when they gained the lands of Cameron and Drummikill. The 'Lands of the Ross' were purchased by William Buchanan in 1625. The male line died out and the heiress of the Ross married Sir Alexander Wellesley William Leith in 1830.
