Descendants of from Tongue, Sutherland, Scotland

The Munros claim to be early natives of Scotland who were driven out by the Romans around 357 A.D. and took refuge in Ireland. At the beginning of the 11th century, the clan supposedly returned to help expel the Danes, or Norsemen, from Scotland. They were under the leadership of Donald, son of O'Caenn who, for his services received the lands of East Dingwell in Ross-shire. These lands later became the Barony of Foulis, and thereafter the chief and his family were designated "of Foulis". The clan spread into Sutherland and were also given a charter for lands in Strathspey in 1309.
