Dougal dies shortly before the Battle of Culloden in 1746. Jamie kills him while defending Claire, and it is Dougal's murder that becomes the catalyst for sending Claire back through the stones.
Dougal is the anglicized form of the Gaelic name Dùghall, which meant "dark stranger" from dubh "dark" and gall "stranger". One of the names given to the invading Vikings, probably for the darker-haired Danes.
