Whither now from R1a1a?

I'd like some advice please on what to get tested now from my present standing at R1a1a?

As far as I can make out there are potential branches from R1a1a1a through R1a1a1h but seemingly not all the branches have tests available at present.

Options please.

Given your Ysearch, have you tested L176.1? My guess is you're positive for that.

@Javelin

Thanks for your reply.

I haven't tested for L176.1.

Is there something you see that makes you think R1a1a1h is a good bet?

And if you're going to test for that you might as well include 175 I suppose?

Is there a name for this h branch?

Your YCAa,b=19,21 and the generally Norse flavour of your Ysearch suggests this is likely. So far the L175 is restricted to the Clan Donald, but there's no harm testing for it (probably negative though).
