Clan Udny is a Scottish armigerous clan from Aberdeenshire, Scotland.[1]

Arms for Udny of the Ilk have been recorded on three occasions in the Lyon Register;[2] 1672-7, 1748–51 and 1789.

The family Udny of Udny possessed the barony of Udny in Aberdeenshire for several generations prior to 1875. The name has been spelled sometimes as Widney and Uldney.[3]

Scottish folk singer Jock Duncan said about the pronunciation of Udny, when commenting on his song about the Aberdeenshire town of Udny on his CD Ye Shine Whar Ye Stan!: "I’ve heard many versions o it - an tunes an aa, fen I wis young. Widney wis the pronunciation. Never naebody heard o Udny: ‘It’s Widney boy - are ye gaun doun tae Widney the nicht?’"[4]
