The name is derived from the Gaelic ‘Mac-an-T’saoir’ meaning ‘son of a carpenter’ which accounts for its occurrence throughout the Highlands.
By the end of the 13th century the MacIntyres of Glen Noe were foresters to the Lord of Lorn. Some became bards, Duncan of Bàn, and families of MacIntyre became hereditary pipers.
