Biography

Angus Og Macdonald, Aonghais Og Mac Dhòmhanaill, was the son of Angus Mòr, Lord of Islay. He succeeded his brother Alexander in 1308 as chief of the Clan Donald also known as Clan Colla.

At the start of the War of Independence Angus Og supported the English interest, but before long he came to follow Robert the Bruce. Angus Og fought at the battle of Bannockburn, June 24, 1314.[1] He and his men, numbering 5000+ were under the direct command of the king and were held in reserve until the appropriate moment.

Angus previously controlled Islay and Kintyre and, for his service and support, the Bruce additionally bestowed the islands of Mull, Jura, Coll and Tiree, and the districts of Glencoe and Morvern. Lochaber, which was in the possession of the Comyns was forfeited and divided between Angus Og and Roderick MacRuari. Angus Og remained a stalwart supporter of King Robert.

He was married to Agnes, daughter of Guy O'Cahan of Ulster, by whom he had John, known as "the good John of Isla", his successor.

He had another son, John, known as Iain Fraoch, progenitor of the family of Glenco, and who is alleged by the seanachies to have been illegitimate. The mother of this John was a daughter of Dougall MacHenry, a leading man in Glenco.[2] [3]

Angus Og MacDonald, Lord of the Isles d 1329-30 The MacDonalds fought with Robert the Bruce at the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314. It was Donald's great grandson, Angus Og of Islay who was the 6th Lord of the Isles who sheltered King Robert the Bruce. Angus led a small band of Islesmen at the Battle of Bannockburn. 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.
