Donald, the eldest son, on the death of Donald the bastard, stiling himself Lord of the Isles, claimed that lordship as lawful heir male of John, Earl of Ross; but King James V., thinking the suppression of that title, and the dissolution of the vassalage thereof, the proper means of effectuating the civilization of the Highlands, refused to grant possession. Donald, resolving to assert his right by force of arms, raised a considerable body of men, and laid siege to the castle of Elendounan [Eilean Donan Castle, Dornie by Kyle], where his Majesty had placed a garrison. He was shot dead with an arrow from the castle, 1537, leaving, by Margaret, his wife, daughter of Roderick Macleod of the Lewis, a son.
