MacThomas Highland Gathering 2017 - an Update               

******

During September 2016 newsletters were sent to all Society members and followers giving details of the plans for the 2017 Highland Gathering. The originally published dates for the event have been adjusted so that a visit to the Royal Ediburgh Military Tattoo can incorporated into the itinerary. Clansfolk in tartan will be able to march onto the Castle Esplanade as part of the performance. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

*****

A summary of the itinerary for the Gathering has now been added to this website and can be viewed by clicking here

If you are considering attending the Gathering why not complete our "Express an Interest" form. Doing this will mean that you are one of the first to receive further information when it becomes available.
