The word 'Clan' means family. A huge part of the tradition of Scottish Festivals is the gathering of the Clans. Each Clan has a unique tartan with a plaid pattern that belongs exclusively to them. The numerous Clan Tents are set up around the main field. Find your family name at one of these tents and there will be someone there to welcome you and acquaint you with your family history. Don't know if you are part of a Clan? Are you interested in learning more about the history of the original Scots and Scots-Irish settlers of our area? The many cultural heritage organizations located in the Clan area will be on hand to answer your questions.
