Who can use this Coat of Arms?

Even if your surname is Miln, you almost certainly can not use this Coat of Arms.

The National Records of Scotland describes who can use this Coat of Arms:

Coats of Arms in Scotland can only belong to one person at a time. There is no single Coat of Arms which all people of the same name can use - often miscalled a “family Coat of Arms”. … Arms descend to the heir in each generation of the person to whom they were originally granted and other descendants who bear the same surname may apply for a slightly different version of the Arms to be recorded in the Public Register of All Arms and Bearings in Scotland.

According to Wikipedia1, this Coat of Arms has been re-matriculated and belongs to Barnaby Miln.
