MacCorquodale Clan

Derived from the Gaelic MacThorcadail meaning “son of Torcadal”, the Maccorqudale surname is believed to have been originally translated from a Norse phrase meaning “cauldron of the thunder spirit”.

The Maccorqudale clan traditionally held lands along the west coast of Loch Awe in Argyll and built their clan seat – Eilean-a-Bharain Castle – on an island at the centre of nearby Loch Tromlee.

The current location of the clan chief is unknown, and the chief line of the clan has not been traced since the 18th century. Therefore, the clan is armigerous.
