Skye is said to be the original home of this family, who owned Scorrybreac at an early period. In 1263, Sir Andrew Nicolson, a Danish knight, commanded one of King Haco's ships at the Battle of Largs. In the Highlands the name was MacNeacail, but this has, latterly, become MacNicol. Nicolsons and MacNicols are found in Argyllshire and elsewhere in Scotland. The Nicolsons of Scorrybreac were the principal family and a baronetcy was conferred in 1629. They took an important part in the affairs of the Island of Skye. Badge Trailing Azalea.
