:-[] 3 Celts & Company • "MACLEOD of Lewis"

The clan of Torquil (see above) early became so powerful as to dispute the superiority of the Harris branch chiefship, attaining at least an independent status. Important branches were the MacGillechallum or MacLeods of Raasay, and those of Assynt. The MacNicols (Nicolson ect.) were originally an independent clan of the Assynt district (Map E 2): they moved to the Portee corner of Skye after a 14th-century Lewis MacLeod had married their Chief's heiress.
