Mackay Country, composed of many townships past and present, communities that have survived and those that have disappeared is not a formally recognised geographical division of Scotland. Dùthaich Mhic Aoidh became a locality when the clan mackay owned and fought for to keep the territories. Today, as we define the area, Mackay Country Community Trust acknowledges the area as a place where people have inhabited for millennium, before during and after clan mackay presence, and we look to explore the past to identify the present and give guidance for the future.
Our research projects gather information from many aspects and we attempt to understand the individuals and populations that have created life styles that have become established and communities that have survived and transformed for the various causes.
The places described in this section give a physical description of the localities.
