Artúr Dall Mac Gurcaigh was a Scottish poet. He was the author of "Dál chabhlaigh ar Chaistéal Suibhne" ("An arranging of a fleet against Castle Sween"), written c. 1310 during the Wars of Scottish Independence. The poem is one of the few Scottish vernacular poems before the mid-14th century, and tells of Eoin mac Suibhne, enemy of King Robert I of Scotland, and head of Clann Suibhne (the MacSweens) - a clan who would be expelled from Scotland and flourish as a mercenary clan in Ireland.
