A branch from very early in the MacDonald line became the Clanranalds and a branch from them settled on the mainland near Inverness. The clan takes its name ‘Glengarry’ unsurprisingly because they were based in Glen garry where the river Garry winds through. There were also MacDonnells at Keppoch which became a separate branch in the same way. The chiefs of the Clan MacDonell of Glengarry were originally seated at Strome Castle but later moved to Invergarry Castle.
