Son of William, at the death of his uncle, Shaw (Oig), became fourth Chief of the MacIntoshes. The war Cry of this Clan was "Loch na Maoidh" (Loch Moy, "the lake of threatening"), a small lake near the seat of the Cheif in Inverness-shire.The Cumhadh mhic a'Arisaig, or MacIntosh's Lament, is exremely plaintive and expressive. It is one of the most touching of that species of music, and a great favorite of the pipers.Shaw was married in 1230 to Helena, daughter of William, Thane of Calder. He is mentioned as having acquired a lease of Rothiemurchus in Strath-spey, but the date is not given. The lands of Rothiemurchus, having been granted by King Alexander II to Andrew, Bishop of Moray, 1226, were held by the Bishops in lease by the Shaws during a hundred years without disturbance.
Prior to 1396 the Clan represented by the MacIntoshes had been (as was common amongst the Clans) often designated as the Clan Shaw, after the successive chiefs of that name, and sometimes, as the Clan of the Mac-an-Toisheach, i.e., the Thane's son.
Shaw died in 1265, and was succeeded by his son Farquhar MacIntosh.
