Magnus Barefoot, the King of Norway, sailed across the North Sea in 1098 to re-establish his county’s power in Celtic lands. He made an agreement with Edger, King of Scots, that he would settle for all the islands of the west coast he could reach whilst his boat’s rubber was in fixed position. He then proceeded to have his boat towed around by his men and claimed not only the isles but the peninsula that is Kintyre.
Fifty years later King Somerled took Kintyre and the islands back. When King Somerled was killed fighting Malcom IV in 1164, he was succeeded by his son Dougall. From Dugall would come the Clan MacDougall and from Dougall’s son Ranald came a grandson Donald, progenitor of the mighty clan MacDonald.
