Ada, Countess of Atholl (c. 1221 - 25 December 1266), was the daughter and heirof Forbhlaith, herself heir of the highland mormaerdom of Atholl, Scotland, and David of Hastings, England.[1]

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 (David of Strathbogie, 8th Earl of Atholl).[2]

She died some time before 25 December 1266.
