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.

We had a great time at the Inverness Highland Games. Thank you to everyone who paid us a visit in the Clan Village - some faces we hope to see again next year at our 2018 gathering.

We had the pleasure of visiting the Brora Heritage Centre last week, where we learned of Jack MacLennan, Scotland's longest serving registrar.
Very interesting display & well worth the visit if ever in the area.

Though I know little of the history of this side of my relatives, I do know that my 2 times great grandmother on my mothers side was born Althena McClennan in Canada. She later married an English immigrant and came to the US (in some such order). Always loved my Celtic appearance and the customs and lore from the culture. My wish is to one day disappear into the Highlands.. lol

Clan Maclennan Scotland shared an event.

Somewhere for folks to come together after attending the days various events commemorating the Battle of Culloden 1746.

Following on from the success of our first evening event after the 2016 commemoration, it has been decided to continue with one again in 2017.

This time however it will be a child friendly event as we are aware that there were a few people who could not make it along due to having childminding issues.

This year however we will not be providing the stovies as the costs for the evening will increase somewhat, however there is a lovely restaurant within the hotel and so you can come along early for a meal and ensure you manage to bag yourself one of the best seats in the house for the evening.

Yet again we have managed to secure the fantastic SCHIEHALLION to entertain us for the evening.

First we have 11yr old Mitchell Reid to play a few tunes on the pipes for us,
after this, Shaun Moore will be performing some of his poetry works and then we will round the evening off with Schiehallion.

And once again we have organised a fantastic raffle and even some items for auction so bring a few extra quid and have a bid, there's some brilliant items to be had.

We hope to see you all there and make it as good or even better than last time.

Prices for the evening are as follows :-

under 5 yrs FREE

5 - 15 yrs £3

16 yrs upwards £7
