MacDonald of Clanranald Clan

The Macdonalds of Clanranald are a branch of the Macdonald clan – one of the largest clans in Scotland.

While the main branch of Clan Donald is associated with Domhnall mac Raghnaill – the eponymous progenitor of the clan, the Macdonalds of Clanranald are instead descended from his son, Aonghus Mór.

The Macdonalds of Clanranald were traditionally based around Castle Tiroam – their traditional seat located on a tidal island in Loch Moidart. The castle is still standing today although it is now in a ruinous state.

The current clan chief is Ranald Alexander Macdonald of Clanranald, who is the 24th Chief and Captain of Clanranald.
