Chief’s Welcome

It is with pleasure that I welcome you to the web site of the Clan MacLennan. This site incorporates the various Clan MacLennan Associations located in Australia, Canada, Scotland and the United States of America and acts as a focal point for MacLennans throughout the world.

Throughout the past couple of hundred years, many of our ancestors emigrated from the Scottish Highlands to seek refuge in foreign lands. Some chose to leave, some were forced.  Few would ever return to Scotland. The result is a considerable volume of “Overseas Highlanders” located throughout the world, most notably in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United States of America. It is often said that the further someone is taken from their homeland, the more patriotic they become and the stronger their desire is to re-connect with their historic homeland. In the modern global world within which we now find ourselves, the desire and ability to trace our roots and to know where we come from and who we are related to becomes all the more important. We are a large family and it is our aim to re-unite this family.

To help facilitate this, Clan MacLennan, after more than 300 years of dormancy, was reborn in 1978 and continues to actively re-unite MacLennan’s throughout the world – welcome to Clan MacLennan Worldwide!

If you want to learn about your Clan’s history, trace your ancestry, research where your family originated from, communicate with other MacLennan’s throughout the world, find out about Clan events and Gatherings in Scotland and overseas, you have come to the right place. Here you will find you will find how to subscribe to a Clan Association in your region.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Dissappointed and sad that the executive committee of the Pipes and Drums of Zurich (only Clan Band of the MacLennan Clan) decided not to attend the Clan Gathering because of a different request of a regular 'customer', whose event is every year - but the Clan Gathering together with our 40th anniversary which we had this September plus the Clans 40th annivesary of the modern Clan MacLennan is only every 4th year. We couldn't organize a big anniversary party of the band because we had lack of people.Travelling to Scotland and being part of this special event would have been our 'anniversary gift'. So I wll be the only one who has the honour to represent the Pipes and Drums of Zurich at the Clan Gathering and proud of it. ...

The McLennan Arch

Glasgow's very own "Arc de Triomphe" sits at the re-designed Saltmarket entrance to Glasgow Green, the Civic Centre laid out in 1991/92. It was not the first artifact to be placed upon the Green, but it is currently the oldest.
This much travelled piece of architecture was originally part of the facade of Robert and James Adam's 1796 Glasgow Assembly Rooms (the Athenaeum) in Ingram St..
The central arch through which people now walk, once framed a window. When the Assembly Rooms were taken down in 1892 to allow for an extension to the Central Post Office, the arch was saved and reconstructed as an entrance to the Green at the junction of Greendyke St. and Monteith Row.

In 1924 it was again moved, on this occasion to form an entry to the Green at the end of Charlotte St..Due to a fault in the foundations, the arch began to tilt and rather than rebuild on the same site, it was transferred to its present location, facing the High Court in Saltmarket, in 1991/92. The arch is known as the McLennan Arch after Baillie James McLennan who presented it to the city, and is inscribed to that effect.
