EVERY weekend, Carl MacDougall, will tell the story of one of Scotland's famous Clans. This weekend, we take a look at the MacDonalds.
The MacDonalds are one of the oldest and biggest of all Scottish clans. More than 40 tartans are associated with their name and the histories of the various branches are intricately connected.
