The MacKinnons claim their descent from the royal family of Kenneth MacAlpine. The clan slogan of “Cumnich Bas Alpin” or “Remember the death of Alpin” refers to the greatgrandson of Kenneth, who was slain by Bruch, King of the Picts, in 837. His son Fingon, or “fairborn” is hailed as the progenitor of the clan. The MacKinnons traditionally held lands in Mull and Skye, including the castle of Dunakin, a broch commanding the narrow sound between Skye and the mainland. Even in the early days they were an enterprising family, and from Dunakin they ran a heavy chain across the sound and levied a charge on all passing ships.
