The Clan is one of the oldest in Scotland and takes its name from Dugall, son of King Somerled, a warrior from a Norse royal House and who held sway over a large portion of western Scotland and who controlled an impressive navy.
Over the years numerous castles were established and many still remain, the Clan seat is Dunollie, Oban, Scotland. The Clan society can provide more detailed information on the clan and clansfolk historically linked with this proud clan.
