The origins of Clan MacLeod can be traced to Leod, who was born around 1200. The Clan takes its name from Leod, whose sons were called MacLeod, “mac” being Gaelic for son. Leod was succeeded by the one son of his of whom we can be certain, Tormod (Norman), became progenitor of the MacLeods of Harris and Dunvegan (Siol Tormod); Torcall (Torquil), a great-grandson of Leod, became progenitor of the MacLeods of the Lewes (Siol Torquil). The Siol Torquil later branched again to also create the MacLeods of Raasay.
Dunvegan Castle has been the seat of the Clan MacLeod since the time of Leod. It is a natural rock fortress on which the castle was built and developed. It has been lived in ever since.
