. He fought at Bannockburn in 1314. Angus Og's grandson, Donald, the 8th Lord of the Isles, married the heiress of the Earldom of Ross and in 1411 fought the Battle of Harlaw to keep his wife's inheritance from being usurped by the Regent Duke of Albany. His army of 10,000 men included the forces of almost every clan of the Highlands and Isles. All these clans were willing vassals of the Lord of the Isles. They regarded the MacDonald Chiefs as the heads of the ancient "Race of Conn," and lineal heirs of the ancient Kings of the Dalriadic Scots,going back to the 6th century and beyond.

On a small island just off the coastline of the Isle of Skye, and near Castle Uisdean, lie the bodies of three Crusader Knights. What a strange and foreign place to bury Knights who fought predominately in the Middle East, unless of course they were Templar Knights living out their final days in the land of Angus Og McDonald. The theory then, is that Robert the Bruce, the Clan Donald of Angus Og, and the Knights Templar joined forces in driving out the English at Bannockburn. The Knights had spent years studying battle and passed this knowledge on to the troops at Bannockburn most of which were under Angus Og. Were the Templars, in fact, the source of the name "young foreign warriors"? -------------------- Angus Og who was the 6th Lord of the Isles who sheltered King Robert the Bruce. In recognition of Clan Donalds support King Robert the Bruce proclaimed that Clan Donald would always occupy the honored position on the right wing of the Scottish army. -------------------- From Wikipedia.com

Angus Og of Islay (d. c. 1316) was a significant figure in the Wars of Scottish Independence.

He was Lord of Islay, head of Clan Donald (or MacDonald), son of Angus Mor (the elder - Og means younger) Macdonald and a grandson of the Donald who gave his name to the clan, who was a grandson of Somerled.

He supported King Robert I of Scotland, and fought at the Battle of Bannockburn. The king gave him lands, an important step in the rise of Clan Donald at the expense of Clan MacDougall. -------------------- Angus 'Oig' Macdonald, Lord of the Isles1 M, #107902, b. before 1296, d. 1330
