The MacKinnons claim their descent from the royal family of King Kenneth MacAlpine. Who was also progenitor of The Royal House of Stewart, and Clan MacGregor.

The clan slogan of “Cumnich Bas Alpin” or “Remember the death of Alpin” refers to the great-grandson of Kenneth, who was slain by Bruch, King of the Picts, in 837. His son Fingon, or “fair-born” is hailed as the progenitor of the clan. His brother Grigor was the progenitor of Clan MacGregor
