|This version shows the narrow 'tramlines' about the
yellow stripe, the usual modern form that differs from
Logans earlier version. The MacNeils claim descent from
Niall, King of Ireland, who came to Barra in 1049. The
present chief, Professor Ian Roderick MacNeil of Barra,
lives in Chicago, U.S.A. There is also a tartan for the
MacNeils of Colonsay. MacNeils are hereditary pipers to
the MacLeans of Duart.
