  Several schemes have been proposed to upgrade the ISIS Spallation Neutron Source at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL). One scenario is to develop a new 800 MeV, H linac and a ~3 GeV synchrotron, opening the possibility of achieving several MW of beam power. In this paper the design of the 800 MeV linac is outlined with an emphasis on the beam dynamics design philosophy. The linac consists of a 3 MeV Front End similar to the one now under construction at RAL (the Front End Test Stand -FETS). Above 3 MeV, a 324 MHz DTL will be used to accelerate the beam up to ~75 MeV. At this stage a novel collimation system will be added to remove the halo and the far off-momentum particles. To achieve the final energy, a 648 MHz superconducting linac will be employed using three families of elliptical cavities with transition energies at ~196 MeV and ~412 MeV.
