The MacKinnons claim their descent from the royal family of Kenneth MacAlpine.
The clan slogan of “Cumnich Bas Alpin” or “Remember the death of Alpin” refers to the great-grandson of Kenneth, who was slain by Bruch, King of the Picts, in 837. His son Fingon, or “fair-born” is hailed as the progenitor of the clan.
