MacNeill of Colonsay History
Like the Lamont, McLachlan and MacSween clans, the name MacNeill is said to descend from Niall of the Nine Hostages, the earliest historical high king of Ireland who reigned in the fifth century.
In the eleventh century, Anrothan, son of Kin Aodh O’Neill married a princess of Dalriada and it was from this union that sprang the house of Torquil of Taynish.
