     Alasdair MacGregor, 11th Chief of Clan Gregor was the son of Gregor MacGregor, 10th Chief of Clan Gregor and Marion Campbell.2 He died on 20 January 1604 at Mercat Cross, Edinburgh, Midlothian, Scotland, executed with 11 of his principal clansmen, being hanged his own height above the rest.1
     He lived at Glenstrae, Scotland.1 Alasdair MacGregor, 11th Chief of Clan Gregor also went by the nick-name of ‘the Arrow of Glenlyon', for his prowess as hunter and archer.1 He held the position of 11th Chief of the Clan Gregor from in 1570.1 In 1589 he was denounced by the Privy Council with 138 of his clansmen because when some Gregarach (members of the Clan Gregor of the branch called the ‘Children of the Mist') brought him the head of their victim John Drummond of Drummond-Ernoch (a Royal Forester of Glenartney who had punished Mac Gregor poachers) he summoned the whole clan together at the Chuch of Balquidder, where they each laid their hand on the severed head in turn.1 In 1591 the MacAulay Chief recognised Alasdair as his own Chief, both asserting a common descent from Clan Alpin.1 In 1591/92 nevertheless he was pardoned.1 In 1596 he gave a bond of good behaviour in the presence of King James VI and the Privy Council and remained in the Royal Household as a pledge for his clan, later sending hostages in his place.1 In 1602 his territory was raided by Maclean of Duart and the Clan Cameron, while some of his wilder Gregarach raided the Colquhouns of Luss of when King James VI's sympathy was aroused by the Colquhoun women bringing him the bloody shirts of their dead and wounded.1 Alasdair was captured by Campbell of Ardkinglas, and escaped by swimming a loch, but was retaken by Argyll, who had promised to send him safe to England but sent him only to Berwick under guard then brought him back at once for trial.1 In 1603 two months later Alasdair himself raided Luss with 400 clansmen, defeating the Colquhouns (now invested with the royal authority) at the Battle of Glenfruin, for which the whole clan Gregor were outlawed and the Name of MacGregor proscribed on pain of death.1
