Malcolm Macleod of Herries, third baron of this family, who got a charter from king David Bruce, dilecto et fideli nostro Malcolmo, filio Tormodi Macleod, pro homagio et servitio suo, duas partes tenementi de Glenelg, viz. octo davatas, et quinque denariatas terra, cum pertinentiis, infra vicecomitatum de Inverness. Faciendo nobis et haeredibus nostris praedictus malcolmus, et haeredes fui, servitium unius navis triginta et fex remorum, quoties super hoc per nos fuerint requisiti, prout facere tenebantur tempore patris nostri, 3c. This charter has no date, but was granted before the year 1359. Malcolm left three sons. 1. John, his heir. 2. Tormod, progenitor of some families of the name of Macleod in Herries, who possessed Bernera, before sir Norman Macleod got it from the family as his patrimony, as aftermentioned. 3. Murdo, ancestor of the Macleods of Gesto, of whom major John Macleod of general Gordon's regiment in Holland, is descended. He was succeeded by his eldest son, John Macleod.

Alick Morrison, THE CHIEFS OF CLAN MACLEOD, East Kilbride, Scotland, 1986. The BANNATYNE MANUSCRIPT, which is our main authority for the history of the early chiefs of the Clan MacLeod, says that Malcolm was 'renowned as the greatest hero of his race'. King David II gave him a charter of Glenelg, [see BOOK OF DUNVEGAN, I. pp. I, 275.] probably as a reward for services rendered, but the MacLeods were in possession of Glenelg long before they came to hold it from the King by charter. Malcolm married a daughter of Sir Neil Campbell of Lochawe, [Alexander MacKenzie, in his HISTORY OF THE MACLEODS (p. 12), says that Malcolm married Martha, daughter of Donald, Earl of Mar. It is possible he may have married her as his second wife.] by whom he had issue.... Chief Malcolm, as he advanced in life, became extremely corpulent, and was known as CALUM REAMHAR MATH (Good Stout Malcolm). The MEMORIAL (1767) says that he was called GILLECALUIM CAS REAMHAR (The Stout-legged Malcolm). While on a visit to his kinsman, MacLeod of Lewis, Malcolm died in the Castle of Stornoway, and his body was conveyed to Iona, where it was buried. His death took place c. 1370. He was succeeded by his eldest son.
