History

The MacDonells of Glengarry claim descent from Donald, one of the five sons of Ranald MacDonald (died 1386), son of John of Islay, Lord of the Isles, and his first wife, Amy of Garmoran, the heiress to the chiefship of Clan Macruari. John later married Margaret Stewart, daughter of Robert II of Scotland. Donald, son of John and Margaret, went on to inherited the chiefship of Clan Donald and the bulk of the clan's lands, while the children of John and Amie were largely passed over.
