Clan MacDougall Badge
Motto
" Victory or death. "

Robert the Bruce was sheltering in the area when the MacDougall Clan, his firm enemies, attacked Rannoch. The MacDougalls were defeated by a local hero, Duncan Reamhar, and their leader was imprisoned in the island fortress Eilean nam Faoileag (Island of the Gulls). He managed to escape by tricking his captors, and he landed at this point, now called MacDougall’s Rock.

The island is a crannog, an artificial island, to which a causeway was constructed from this shore so that it was just under the surface of the water, and its route was irregular as a guard against unwanted intruders.
