Hugh Magnus MacLeod of MacLeod (born 1973) is Chief of Clan MacLeod and is currently representing the Associated Clan MacLeod Societies in the Standing Council of Scottish Chiefs.[1] He is also recognized Chief of the Name and Arms of MacLeod, in Scotland and the United Kingdom, by the Court of the Lord Lyon.
On the death of his father, John MacLeod of MacLeod, Hugh inherited Dunvegan Castle, the ancient seat of the chiefs of Macleod, and the associated ancestral clan territories, which still extend to over 42,000 acres (17,000 ha) on the Isle of Skye.

The Latin motto, murus aheneus esto, translates into English as "be thou a wall of brass".[2] The 1st and 4th quarters represent Clan MacLeod; the 2nd and 3rd quarters represent the supposed royal Manx heritage of the clan.
