Here are some links that I dug up looking for my ancestors in Scotland. The McCullochs were septs of the MacDougal clan by that they fought with them and used the same tartan.
Since the name of a clan family stayed much in one area unless by marriage into another clan.... the location of MacCulloch or McCulloch was Galloway on the west side of Scotland. You Can read more from the book "History of the Galloway Families of McCulloch" by Walter Jameson McCulloch. In 1296 Thomas Mackulagh the Count Wiggetone, was Sheriff of Wiggetone by pledging to King Edward the first. James McCulloch of Cardoness built Cardoness Castle which was a McCulloch strong hold for 200 years..You'll find it near Galloway in Scotland.There was a huge feud between McCullochs, MacLellans and McCullochs and Gordons in the 1600s. Ending in the loss of the stronghold to the other families.
At least you know who your ancestors were over there. Mine died here in America before any documentation of him and he left a widow with no background yet to find.
I would follow up in Galloway after the Culloden adventure in 1746.
Good Luck on your search!
