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.  If you are looking for other Clan places to visit you might find suggestions in the free eBook A guide to some MacLennan Places across Scotland. Download the book to your phone or tablet and let Maps give you directions to the selected Place.

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