Map of Viking Isle of Man

The Kingdom of Mann and the Isles. The Orkneys and Shetlands were primarily Norse speaking, the people being of mixed Viking and Pictish blood. Those in the Hebrides and West Highlands were the Gall Gael or Vikingar Skotar (Viking Scots), speaking both Norse and Gaelic and often with a Norse and a Gaelic name or having both combined (for example Thorfinn mac Fergus or Conall Godfreysson).

The Kingdom of Mann and the Isles comprised the Hebrides, the islands of the Firth of Clyde and the Isle of Man from the to the centuries AD. The islands were known to the Norse as the Suðreyjar, or "Southern Isles"
