:-[]:oops: 3 Celts & Company • "MACINTYRE"

By tradition a branch from the Skye MacDonalds, the clan achieved most note from their bards and musicians. The name means, son of the wright or carpenter. For centuries until 1810 inhabiting Glen Noe off Loch Etive, the MacIntyres were too small to stand alone, and first followed the banner of the Appin Stewarts, then latterly of the Campbell superiors of their land, though one branch became hereditary pipers to the Menzies chiefs.
