Fàilte, Welcome, to Clan MacLennan Scotland



A feature coming up will be the 2018 Highland Gathering in Inverness, Scotland.  Many local and overseas Clan members have already indicated they plan to attend. To find out more, please click on the menu item “2018 Gathering”.

Our Clan genealogy pages are a place where your ancestors can be properly recorded for posterity.  We already have over 35,000 individuals in our Clan database – mostly Scottish Clan members and their families but also many overseas Clan members. Evidence for the relationships includes: official record citations, certificates, headstones and much more.  Clan members can contribute your ancestors to the collection.  Access to the on-line Clan database is available simply by joining a Clan association – please click the “Genealogy” link or from the menu on this page.

The banner includes an image form Kintail, the MacLennan homeland on the west coast of Scotland.  The much-photographed “castle” was built in the 1920’s by a McRae family with Canadian connections on the ruins of an actual castle reduced to ruins in the Jacobite “Rising” of 1719

We have an active Facebook page is a place to connect with other Clan members.

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.
