On Friday we’ll make the pilgrimage to the historic Culloden Battlefield where the 1745 Jacobite Rising came to a tragic end. You’ll also have your choice of visiting the renown Cardhu Distillery, the 230-year old Knockando Woolmill Scotland or see how casks are made at the Speyside Cooperage followed by lunch in beautiful Aberlour. Friday night we’ll be awash in MacAulay tartans as we celebrate our heritage at the formal banquet. Entertainment to follow.
On Saturday you’ll have time to delve into MacAulay genealogy, participate in the MacAulay Heavy(ish) Games, have free time to visit some of the great local spots of interest and then Saturday afternoon take part in the Annual General Meeting of Clan MacAulay Association. Late afternoon you’ll have the choice of a whisky or beer tasting before we kick up our kilts at the ceilidh.
Sunday morning following breakfast we’ll bid adieu until we meet two years hence at the 2021 Clan MacAulay International Gathering.
Organiser Bill O’Reilly and the organising committee look forward to seeing you there!
