Clan Gathering (Edinburgh 2009)


HISTORY (Summary)

The MacLennans are an old Scottish clan, descending from the Royal Celtic families of Scotland and Ireland. At the Battle of Auldearn in 1645, the clan failed to receive an order to retreat and were isolated and cut down, including the chief. For the next 330 years, the Clan had no official Chief until 1969, Ronald George MacLennan declared his intention to claim the position of Chief. Due to the tireless energy of this vital, proud Scot, the Clan recognized his right to the position. Thirty years of tenacious searches and researches were rewarded with the Matriculation of Arms - the acknowledgment of the Lord Lyon, King of Arms of Scotland - and his installation as Chief of the MacLennan Clan at a ceremony in Inverness in 1978, which was the first such ceremony to be performed for at least two centuries.
