Fàilte, Welcome, to Clan MacLennan Scotland



The New and updated gathering programme is now live. Please click on the menu button 2018 Gathering to see what we are organising. We are trying to cater for all ages and tastes. Many local and overseas Clan members have already indicated they plan to attend. As this is the 40th Anniversary of having a Clan Chief let us make it a Memorable One.

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.

Dear cousins, I am casually in search of the background of my Boston, Massachusetts ancestor named William McClennen (and spelled all sorts of ways here). His date of birth was 11 Jan 1760 in Scotland and he was said to have arrived in Boston in 1775 (age 15). As an adult he was in the ship-rigging trade at India Wharf in Boston Harbor. He was a military fifer in 1780-81. If any of you in the home country has any clue about him, his family, his likely residence before going to sea, etc. I would be most grateful to hear from you. Many thanks, Emery McClennen

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 -; for sales; and for help - 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.

Planning on attending the clan gathering this July. I was wondering if someone can spell out the dress codes for the events.
Not sure what is meant by Tartan informal.
Black tie- do women need to wear a long dress? Men is that tux only? If so do they have rental places nearby as my husband doesn’t own one and rarely has need of one.

Thank you.

Any Outlander fans amongst Clan MacLennan?

Did you know we've a day trip planned during this years gathering to the Highland Folk Museum where some of Outlander was filmed?!

We can't promise Jamie Fraser will be there but we'll be treated to a private tour from guides dressed in period clothing.

The Highland Folk museum is located at Newtonmore in the Scottish Highlands amidst some of the most beautiful scenery in the world!

Don't miss out, make sure to secure your space on this trip!
