Chapter Summary

This chapter begins with the history of Clan Chattan as narrated by Charles Fraser Mackintosh. The usual starting point for all Clann Mhic and Tòisich history is a manuscript now called the Kinrara MS. This was written in 1679 by Lachlan Mackintosh of Kinrara. The next section narrates the Clann Mhic and Tòisich history delving into other sources besides Kinrara. This chapter lists in tabular form the pre-1496 Clann Mhic and Tòisich battle honours. This may have been obtained from Farquhar's manuscript. The pre-1500 grants are laid out in another table. The chapter discusses how the alliance was formed between Clann Dhomhnaill and Clann Mhic and Tòisich, and explains how the alliance ended. It is only in 1444 that incontrovertible proof emerged to confirm a relationship between the chief of Clann Mhic and Tòisich and the Lord of the Isles.
