Scottish Clans

A Scottish clan (from Gaelic clann, "progeny") is a kinship group among the Scottish people. Clans give a sense of shared identity and descent to members, and in modern times have an official structure recognised by the Court of the Lord Lyon, which regulates Scottish heraldry and coats of arms. Most clans have their own tartan patterns, usually dating from the 19th century, which members may incorporate into kilts or other clothing.


Come find your heritage at one of our many, many Clan Booths and enjoy the Clan Parade as well as a Clan Presentation held on the Clan Mile each day at 10:30am on Saturday and 11:15 on Sunday.


Clan booths can help you trace your heritage, give you information on the clan as well as membership information, and much more!
