The Lordship of the Isles dominated the Western Isles of Scotland during the middle ages. They emerged from the fusion of Gaelic and Viking cultures under the Lords of the Isles, who were descended from Somerled (d.1164). They utilised the iconic Birlinn, an adaptation of the old Viking Longships, although with an additional rudder. The Lordship was extinguished in 1493 by James IV. From Somerled and the Lords of the Isles descend the famous Macdonald, Macdonnell, Macrory, Macalister and Clan Macdougall.
