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.

Did you know that our gathering this year also marks the 40th anniversary of when Ronald was inaugurated as Chief of the Clan at a ceremony held in Inverness in 1978.

Prior to 1976 there had not been a recognised MacLennan chief for over three hundred years.

In 1977, the Lord Lyon King of Arms recognised Ronald George MacLennan as the 'Chief of the Name and Arms of MacLennan'.

Ronald's son and heir Ruairidh Donald George MacLennan of MacLennan became Scotland's youngest clan chief at the age of 13 following his father's death in 1989.

Today we have active associations in Scotland, Australia, Canada, the USA and New Zealand and can’t wait to see some of you at our Gathering!
