Abstract: From a traditional perspective, the 1493 forfeiture of the lordship of the Isles was the death blow to an unruly, disloyal kindred beyond the reach of royal authority to which it was consistently antagonistic. But while 1493 may have signalled the end of the lordship as it had existed since the early fourteenth century, this chapter seeks to question the extent to which MacDonald influence in the west was cauterised by one single event, examining the enduring influence of the MacDonalds and the continued efforts of the crown to govern the region in the wake of the forfeiture.
