The Clan MacDougall, which owed its origins to the Vikings, ruled over Glencoe until the end of the 13th century. However, their empire collapsed after 1308 when they decided to support John Balliol's claim to the Scottish throne over that of Robert the Bruce. Later, as undisputed king, Bruce gifted Glencoe to Clan MacDonald.
