Aonghas mac Somhairle (English: Angus, son of Somerled), sometimes called Angus, Lord of Bute and Arran (c. 1150-1210) was a son of Somerled and Ragnhild, (daughter of Olaf I Godredsson, King of the Isles, and Ingebjorg, herself daughter of Haakon Paulsson, Earl of Orkney). Aonghas succeeded his father, inheriting lands in Garmoran, Skye, Rum, Eigg, Bute and Arran and became known as Lord of Bute and Arran. In 1192 in a battle between Aonghas and his brother Raghnall, he was victorious and many were wounded and fell. He lost his lands on Bute after Alan fitz Walter was granted the lands of Bute by William I of Scotland in 1200. Aonghas was killed in battle with his three sons on Skye in 1210.[note 1] After the death of Aonghas and his heirs, his brother Raghnall's sons Domhnall and Ruaidhri took possession of his lands.
