This case has wide ranging implications.
My correspondent's haplotype is "classic" R1a - the "Somerled type"
as reflected in some members of the McDonald clan.

Note, and whhhhheeeewwwww ....
it turns out that Dr. Faux's testee is NOT a Somerled person
after all. He certainly looks R1a-ish from Athey's calculator,
but is off from the purported Somerled by 9 markers, which is
a lot. In particular, Somerled is 8 at 459a, while most (80%)
R1a are 9, and Somerled's 458 is 16, equally uncommon.
