William Keith MacLeod is the son of the late Duncan William MacLeod and his wife the former Catharine Chisholm. He was born on the MacLeod farm homestead-Skye, January 29th, 1904.
He was named William Keith, but due to his stature being slightly smaller than an average MacLeod from the Isle of Skye, he has been affectionately known by his legion of friends as Little Willie.

In league play over a period of more than a score of years, Willie MacLeod rates with all time great half backs in Glengarry soccer.
Willie played his entire career with Dunvegan and fondly looks back on the club's great year of 1939 when they won the county championship defeating Pine Grove in a three game thriller. From sportsmanship awards on the soccer field William K. MacLeod continued to win honours this time in agriculture competition at many area exhibitions with displays of seed and personal active work especially with the Kenyon Agriculture Society.
Little Willie lived in retirement on the MacLeod farm home and aided by his wife, the former Maude Hartrick, maintained Scottish traditions which has truly made William Keith MacLeod the Laird of Skye. He passed away in 1995.
