In 1588 the Clans MacIan and McDonald of Scotland were ravaged and sacked village by village by the Clan MacLean with 100 mercenaries from the ship San Juan De Sicilia of the Spanish Armada to fight with them. When the MacIan and MacDonald reinforcements arrived, MacLeans and the Spaniards withdrew their burning and sacking. The Spaniards returned to their ship. Later, the bay was rocked with a huge explosion and the Gold filled galleon sank to the bottom of the sea. Could the Clans MacIan (Mac-ian) or MacDonald have organized this deed in seeking revenge for the sackings? The story is the stuff of legends and the mystery remains to this day.
