On Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th July, Frances Gunn, Dorothy Pritchard and Rachel Skene from Strathnaver Museum, attended “The Gathering” at Holyrood Park, Edinburgh.
The Museum was pleased that The Clan Mackay Society was receptive to our request to join with the Society in order to promote the museum, aiming in particular to highlight further “The Clan Mackay Room“.
The weekend was enjoyable and considered a success by all involved in manning the ‘’Mackay” Tent, within the Clan Village. Many visitors with Mackay connections visited the tent and were keen to learn more about the Clan and the Museum. New connections and friendships were made and information shared.
