Welcome to Clan MacLennan New Zealand. Our Clan genealogy pages for New Zealand have probably the best coverage of any region in the world – with roots going back to Scotland and elsewhere. The evidence for the work include official record citations, certificates, headstones and much more. We have good coverage of the McLennans who migrated from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia to Waipu (and surrounds). Access to the on-line Clan database is available simply by joining the Clan association – please click on “Membership application” on this page.

We attend Highland Gatherings in different parts of NZ, our Facebook page is a place to connect with other Clan members.

A feature coming up will be the 2018 Highland Gathering in Inverness, Scotland.  Some NZ members have already indicated they plan to attend. To find out more, please click on the menu item.

We intend to hold a raffle over the Weekend of the Gathering.
In respect of this, I would be obliged if Clans-folk could donate a prize. We intend to hold this at the Ceilidh on the Friday evening in Dores. Any gift, (no matter how small or silly), would be appreciated and thanks in advance.

Can I remind Clans-folk coming to the Gathering to attend registration on the Thursday evening. This is in order to pick up tickets and itinerary for the weekend. It will also give everyone a chance to meet old friends, (and make new ones), as well as meeting the Scottish Committee who are running the whole event.

AND from Alistair MacLennan:
For anyone wishing to attend the Gathering and would like to purchase any Clan memorabilia, Scotclans is going to have a shop at the Beaufort Hotel on Thursday and Friday 5th and 6th July. At the same time, if you would like to purchase anything for the Gathering, you can order that item online and pick it up from them in Inverness, thus saving packaging and posting. They can be contacted online at: for information - info@scotclans.com; for sales -sales@scotclans.com; and for help - support@scotclans.com. You can also contact them via landline at: 0131 555 0248. They are asking for at least 4 weeks notice (prior to the Gathering), for any gifts that may need making up, (ie kilts etc), although it may be prudent to give them a bit more time for these items. If you are ordering anything please remember to quote "MacLennan" in order to obtain a discount, and make it clear that your order is for our Gathering and you will pick it up in Inverness.

Self portrait. DIY.
Me riding 'to work" with cameras in my trusty LowePro backpack. This is in my home territory, Queenstown, New Zealand with the Remarkable Mountain range behind. I set my camera up on my tripod, prefocused and then went around and rode into the image. I remotely fired the camera from the handlebar with my Hahnel remote.
