MacDonell of Glengarry History
A branch from very early in the MacDonald line became the Clanranalds and a branch from them settled on the mainland near Inverness, built Invergarry Castle and chose to spell their name MacDonnell, which is nearer the Gaelic original MacDhomhnuill.
The MacDonell name itself is found in two distinct families known as MacDonnell of Keppoch and MacDonell of Glengarry.
