Dear All:


The 2002 schedule:

Please forward to others.

Colquhoun Clan Gathering
The annual Colquhoun Clan Gathering is always in the same week as the Luss
Highland Gathering which takes place on the third Wednesday of July each
year - in 2002 that is 17th July. The clan has a five day event around
that event and always includes its own 'gathering' at the traditional site
of Cnoc Elachan. The son of the Colquhoun Chief, Malcolm Colquhoun, Younger
of Luss and heir to the title will be at the Luss Highland Games where he
carries out the duties of Games "Chieftain". There is also a Clan
Gathering at the Games and in the evening there is a Ceilidh. On subsequent
days there are tours of the Clan lands, castles, churches and battle sites
and a visit to Loch Lomond and Inchcaillioch (or Inchmurrin) where Sir
John Colquhoun was slain by the MacLeans in the 15th century. 2003 is the
400th anniversary of the Battle in Glenfruin and there are plans for a
large Gathering and re-enactment event in Glenfruin on the weekend
19th/20th July 2003. Clan MacFarlane are coming from the USA with their
groups. See http://www.clancolquhoun.co.uk for more details.
