    R1a , Clan MacDougall and Somerled

    It has been known for some time that Somerled was likely R1a due to the various Chiefs of Clan Donald all having the same YDNA signature , as well as assorted McAllister’s , McKane‘s etc . There is now more evidence to back that up , as the McDougalls - allegedly descended from Somerleds son Dugall- are shown to be an offshoot from the same R1a paternal lineage.
