MacDougall History

A Gaelic generalisation when describing the Viking invaders was by colouring, Finn Ghall for fair stranger and Dubh Ghall for a dark stranger. Dubh Ghall was the descriptive name given to the eldest son of King Somerled.

Somerled’s father-in-law was Olaf, King of Man, and when Somerled died in 1164 Dougall became senior King of Dalriada.
