If you've found some McDills already in Scotland, then that's a probably a good area to begin doing research in. According to a book I consulted several years ago, McDill is probably a corruption of the name McDowell. The McDowell belonged to the Clan McDougall and the McDougalls came from the Oban area (at least Medievally). But the best place to start might be with the current McDills. Try contacting someone and try to find a genealogist working on the Scottish line. They might already know something about the Irish line.
