This is from the list of Cameron septs on the clan-cameron.org:

MacKAIL, MacKELL, MacPHAIL, MacVAIL, MacVAILE, MacVAILL, MacVALE, PAUL

The MacPhails and the associated spelling variations of their surname are of the same "stock" as the MacBeans and both are said to be MacGillonies in origin.  The ancestor of MacBean of Kinchyle, chief of Clan Bheann, came from Lochaber.  Many of this "ilk" settled near Inverness, upon the marriage of the heiress of Clanchattan and MacIntosh, early in the fourteenth century.  A portion of this clan, known as MacPhails (son of Paul) remained in Lochaber and followed Lochiel.  Tradition holds that the MacPhails at one time occupied Fassifern and were quite influential.
