About Gregor Garbh (the Stout) MacAlpin of Glenorchy

He was Lord of Glenurchy. He fought with Duncan I against the Normans and the Danes 1035-1040. He greatly resented the murder of Duncan by MacBeth, and was a strong supporter of Malcolm III.

For more information:

Gregoir, Bishop of Dunkeld (died 1169) ruled as Bishop of Dunkeld in the middle of the 12th century. He appears in a great number of charters dating to the reigns of David I of Scotland and Máel Coluim IV of Scotland, the earliest of which may date to 1135, although 1146 is the first firm date, when he appears alongside Bishop Andreas of Caithness in the Gaelic notitiae on the Book of Deer. He is not the last Gaelic bishop of the diocese, but his death marks the end of dominance of the bishopric by principally Gaelic-speaking bishops.

The name 'MacNab' means 'Son of the Abbot' and since Gregor was a Bishop or Abbot who left progeny.
