    Jock,

    You beat me to it. So many others to choose from, including:

    Alasdair mac Mhaighstir Alasdair
    John Roy Stewart
    Iain Lom
    Duncan Ban MacIntyre

    And more recently - Sorley MacLean and Iain Crichton Smith

    Let’s not forget the ladies too:

    Śleas na Ceapaich
    Christiana Fergusson
    Màiri Mḥr nan ̉ran

    And many more besides.
