MacAulay International Gathering Postponed to 2022 in Stornoway!

After much deliberation it was decided unanimously by your Clan MacAulay executive committee that the MacAulay International Gathering will be postponed to August 2022. It will be held in Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis. The MacAulays have a large presence in the Western Isles and the Caladh Inn in Stornoway will be the MacAulays home base for three days as we gather our people together and explore historical points of interest on Lewis. We look forward to seeing everyone there. Watch this video to experience the beauty of Lewis and Harris.

The Passing of Lifetime President Donald MacAulay

It is with sorrow that I share with you the sad news that Lifetime President Donald MacAulay passed away this morning. He was a kind, caring and charismatic man who generously shared his love of Clan MacAulay and contributed greatly to its success.

Chief Emeritus Hector, upon notifying me today, stated the indisputable … “Donald served the clan with distinction.”

Because of the current pandemic there will not be a funeral service. A celebration of his life will take place later this year.

I have extended our condolences to his lovely wife Eileen and family. Please take a moment, in whatever way you feel most appropriate, to give thanks for the life of a great man, Donald MacAulay. He will be deeply missed.

Joan, Chief
