MacKenzie Clan

Derived from the Gaelic MacCoinneach which means “son of the fair bright one”, the MacKenzies are said to have been descended from Gilleoin of the Aird, a Gaelic dynast who lived in the early 12th century.

The clan would go on to have control of lands in the Highlands of Scotland, particularly in Ross-shire. The most important location within these lands was Eilean Donan Castle, still a popular location today.

The current clan chief is John Mackenzie, 5th Earl of Cromartie.
