Brief Clan History

Also known as Clan Donald, and one of Scotlands largest clans, it spawned many branches. Tracing ancestry from the colourful Somerled of the Isles, this clan of the Western Isles played a key role in Scotlands affairs, and for centuries flourished as the MacDonald Lords of the Isles.

Descended from Donald, grandson of Somerled of the Isles, this is the oldest, and most famous, of all Scottish clans.

The Lords of the Isles held sway over large territories and ruled as independent princes. They supported Bruce in his struggle for Independence, but their claim to the Earldom of Ross brought them into conflict with the Crown.

After the Battle of Harlaw, in 1411, Alexander MacDonald was acknowledged Earl of Ross, but the title was forfeited in 1494. Many branches exist of this once all-powerful clan and with it, also, was associated numerous septs or broken clans who took protection from them.

The MacDonalds supported the Royal Stuarts, and their prowess in battle and in clan feuds made them feared and respected.
