Welcome to the official web site of the High Council of Clan Donald Chiefs. The High Council comprises 5 of the extant Chiefs of Clan Donald and provides a forum for the leadership of the Clan worldwide.

The badge of the High Council is the seal of Angus Mor of Islay (1249 - c.1300) son of the eponymous Donald Mac Ranald and therefore the first Macdonald. Angus Mor was the first de facto Lord of The Isles under Scottish rule, though the title was not officially established in the Scottish Realm until the time of his grandson John. Donald, Angus' father, was the 4th King of the Isles (c.1210 - 1230) under the Norwegian Realm. The Latin text reads: S'. (Sigillum) Angus de Yle Filii Doanaldi; in English: The Seal of Angus of Islay son of Donald. Today, the seal signifies the endorsement of the High Council of Clan Donald Chiefs.
