After the slaying of Þorkell, Sigurðr was banished from Orkney, and he joined King David of Scotland.

David I ruled Scotland from 1124 until his death in 1153. It is not clear exactly when Sigurðr spent these five years with him, and the prose versions differ in their accounts. According to Mork, he was in Orkney before he went on his pilgrimage to Rome and Jerusalem (sts 8-9). Hkr (ÍF 28, 297-8) places his stay in Orkney after the pilgrimage, and Orkn (ÍF 34, 115) states that he stayed in Scotland prior to his arrival in Orkney and prior to the slaying of Þorkell fóstri (st. 2 above), which took place c. 1127-8 (see ÍF 34, lxxxv).
