The lands around Loch Arkaig and Glen Loy (Gleann Laoigh, sometimes anglicised as Glenlui) had previously been undisputedly owned by the Camerons for many years until they were demanded by William MacKintosh, son of Angus, 6th Chief of Clan MacKintosh. The MacKintoshes appealed to the sword and a battle was fought at Drumlui. The most likely location is Druim Gleann Laoigh, a mountain in the middle of the area in question. The Camerons, under the leadership of Donald Alin Mhic Evin, were defeated. This battle led to a very long-lasting 350 year feud with the two clans constantly attacking each other until the Stand-off at the Fords of Arkaig in 1665.
