Background: The Ross clan was erected in 1160 under Malcolm. In old Gaelic, "ros" means promontory, which is the dominant feature of Easter Ross. From this, the ancient Earls and the people took their name. In 1234 Farquhar Mac an t-Sagairt, lay abbot of Applecross, was created the first O'Beolan Earl of Ross by Alexander II of Scotland for suppressing the uprisings in Moray and Ross. The Earls of Ross became the most powerful of all the Highland chiefs in the 13th and 14th centuries, and the Earldom one of the most influential in Scotland.
