Achievement was granted to Mark Paul Lindley-Highfield of Ballumbie
Castle by initial Warrant and subsequent Letters Patent of the Lord
Lyon King of Arms.
The chief (top half) of the shield represents the armiger's ownership
of Ballumbie Castle in Angus. The fess chequy is an allusion to the
family's former possession of the barony of Cartsburn, which anciently was
held of the Prince and Great Steward of Scotland as Baron of Renfrew.
The base of
the shield contains a Yorkshire rose, representing the armiger's
connection with the county through his paternal grandmother, Phyllis Jenkinson, originally of Swinton, Yorkshire. The colours of the Arms
are symbolic of the thistle, indicative of the armiger's love of
Scotland, which is also alluded to in the colours of the castle, based
on those of the Saltire, the national flag.
The motto, Fortiores Coniuncti, translates as 'Together Stronger',
which is a contraction of another family motto, "As long as we are
together, the rest will fall into place".
