I've been reading a document produced by a Timothy N. Nurse which has been questioning some of the resoning behind the thinking that the clan name orginates from the Isle of Skye. This goes against all that I've read about the origin of our name on the internet.
I'll still unsure if this Internet thing is actually a reliable source of information. Timothy N. Nurse has produced a convincing argument against the link with Kyleakin and Dunakin. It also seems to include referances, which is more than I've found on the internet sites which say we orginate from Skye. Does anyone know of a document that actually states the origin of the clan name? I have read that it's a sept of the Clan Gordon which originates from Aberdeenshire.
