Every two years, there is an International Clan Gathering at Duart Castle on the Island of Mull in Scotland. Every member of the Clan is invited and encouraged to attend. It is a great way to meet new cousins. It is also a great time to see the first hand our heritage, and the historical places our ancestors called home. Throughout the year, there are many other gatherings, such as the various Highland Games, at which Macleans get together to enjoy each other’s company and kinship.
