The western coast of Scotland and the desolate Hebrides islands are the ancient home of the McAlping family. Their name is derived from the son of the blond one, or son of Alpin.

Early Origins of the McAlping family


The surname McAlping was first found in Argyllshire (Gaelic erra Ghaidheal), the region of western Scotland corresponding roughly with the ancient Kingdom of Dál Riata, in the Strathclyde region of Scotland, now part of the Council Area of Argyll and Bute, where they were descended from King Kenneth MacAlpin who was murdered by the Picts near Dundee in the year 834. MacAlpin is generally considered to have been the first king to rule both Scots and Picts, and as such, was the first king of Scotland.
