(Gleann Dail)

A locality forming part of a crofting township on the island of Skye, Glendale lies 4 miles (6.5 km) west of Dunvegan Castle, by the Hamara River which flows through Glen Dale into Loch Pooltiel. In 1904 Glendale (Gael: Gleann Dail) was bought from the landlord by the Board of Agriculture and resold to the crofters who became the first crofter landowners in Scotland. The renowned Gaelic lyricists Donald MacLeod and his sons John and Neil were born at Glendale.
