...."[Clan Donald] signature which begins:
13-24-14-10-11-14-12-12-12-13-13-30
has subsequently been recognized as the modal (most frequent)
signature within the Scottish highlands.
It has variously been referred to as Dalriadic modal and Scots47.
It is one of the largest R1b groups in Clan Donald."
