When our Clan Chief signed up to Scotland’s Food Charter he said “This year our International Clan Gathering to be held in September at Aviemore is being sponsored by the Scottish Government’s Clan Event Fund. As part of the sponsorship we have agreed to sign up to promote the Government’s Scottish Food Charter.”
The Food Charter is aimed at promoting Scotland’s fast-growing food and drinks industry. An industry that exported over £6B last year is expected to grow even further in the years ahead as our iconic products like salmon and whisky are becoming increasingly popular around the world.

Greetings all! Ted here reporting on my first food tour in Canada. Andy at A Taste of Victoria Food Tours couldn’t have been nicer. He’s extremely knowledgeable about the food scene here in Victoria as well as the city’s history. Andy selects restaurants that are committed to locally sourced ingredients and chefs that showcase their creativity, the quality and freshness.
Our tour group was lovely. Aside from Andy there were 6 Canadians (2 Saskatchewanians, 2 Albertans and 2 British Columbians), 2 Australians and me, the lone Scot. Continue reading

Thank you to Kathy McCauley and Susan Caldwell for locating and compiling this material for Clan MacAulay! Their dedication and commitment to the history of the Clan is second to none!
Ardincaple Castle and its Lairds was published in 1930 by Edward Randolph Welles. It’s an investigation into the history of Ardincaple Castle and the MacAulays who controlled it, including the last known Clan Chief Auley MacAuley. The author suggests that those MacAulays were involved with (and possibly related to) the Earls of Lennox. Welles acknowledges in the preface that he relied on the notes from a previous researcher, Dr. David Murray. A daughter of Dr. Murray gave Welles permission to use her father’s unpublished manuscript. Continue reading
Hello everyone! My name is Tartan Ted and I’ve recently arrived from Scotland to begin my Canadian journey. My kind family at the Scotland Shop have sent me on this grand adventure and my first host family are the MacAulays. I’m excited that I’m starting on the west coast and hope to be able to visit Central and Eastern Canada as well! My goal is to reach the Fergus Games in Ontario in August. Victoria is certainly beautiful and I can’t wait to see more of Canada!
For my journey I’m attired (head to toe) in Canada’s maple leaf tartan, their national symbol. David Weiser’s design reflects “the colours of the maple leaf as it changes through the seasons—green in the spring, gold in the early autumn, red at the first frost, and brown after falling”.
