Dòideag (pronounced [ˈt̪ɔːtʲak]) was a famous legendary witch from the Isle of Mull in Scotland. She was said to have been responsible for the demise of the Spanish Armada, although most prefer to blame natural causes.

According to another version, she was one of "Na Dòideagan" (the Doideags), who were connected with Maclean of Duart, and sank a Spanish armada ship off Tobermory, Isle of Mull. There is still some confusion over what ship this was, some say it was the Almirante di Florencia, one of the treasure ships also known as the Florencia or the Florida. Others claim it was the vessel San Juan De Sicilia with plenty of troops but very little treasure on board.
