Ada, Countess of Atholl, was the daughter and heiress of Forbhlaith, who was herself heiress of the highland mormaerdom of Atholl, Scotland, and David of Hastings, England.

Her marriage to John de Strathbogie (a semi-Normanized Gael descended from Donnchadh II, Mormaer of Fife) gave rise to the Strathbogie dynasty of Atholl Earls, beginning with their son David.
