Attempting to expand the Maclean’s territory, Sir Lachlan Mor Maclean invaded the Island of Islay at Traigh Ghruinneart. The Maclean’s nephew, Sir James MacDonald, made several offers to share the territory, however all were refused.
The MacDonalds, who were outnumbered defeated the Macleans, killing 280 men–including Sir Lachlan Mor Maclean, the 14th Chief. According to legend Sir Lachlan Mor was killed by Dubh Sith, a black elf whose help Sir Lachlan Mor had refused days earlier.
