Map 1: Scotland:

 MAP OF SCOTLAND highlighting the Lands of Clan Donald

Clan Donald is the largest of the highland clans.

Clan Donald is the ancient Celtic way of referring to extended family with a common ancestor, in this case, referring to “Donald of Islay.”  The word “MacDonald” was used when referring to the Clan chief rather than a surname and was sometimes used when referring to the descendants of “Donald of Islay.”  The clan now is exclusively called “Clan Donald”.

MacCutchen and MacQuistan originated in Skye and are 2 of the “official” names attached to Clan Donald.
