Malcolm married a daughter of Sir Neil Campbell of Lochawe, [Alexander MacKenzie, in his HISTORY OF THE MACLEODS (p. 12), says that Malcolm married Martha, daughter of Donald, Earl of Mar. It is possible he may have married her as his second wife.] by whom he had issue…. Chief Malcolm, as he advanced in life, became extremely corpulent, and was known as CALUM REAMHAR MATH (Good Stout Malcolm). The MEMORIAL (1767) says that he was called GILLECALUIM CAS REAMHAR (The Stout-legged Malcolm). While on a visit to his kinsman, MacLeod of Lewis, Malcolm died in the Castle of Stornoway, and his body was conveyed to Iona Abbey, where it was buried. His death took place c. 1370. He was succeeded by his eldest son.
