Territory of the MacLeod clan:

Tradition has it that the clan is decended from Griogar, third son of the Celtic Scottish King Alpin in the 8th century. At one time they possessed much territory on the borders of Perthshire and Argyll, Glenstrae and Glenlochy, Glenlyon and Glengyle. However the Campbells deprived them of much of this resulting in years of territorial conflict.
For many years it was illegal to bear the name Macgregor. In 1775 an Act of Parliament finally restored the name to a clan.
The best know Macgregor is Rob Roy.
