Announcing dates for the World Gathering of MacIntyres 2018
The Clan MacIntyre Trust met today and the Trustees passed a resolution on the dates for the World Gathering of MacIntyres in 2018.
I’m very pleased to announce that the World Gathering of MacIntyres 2018 will take place from the Tuesday 17th to Sunday 22nd of July, 2018 (inclusive). The Gathering will be held in the area of Oban and Taynuilt, Scotland.
The World Gathering in 2008 was an amazing experience and we are very excited for this next one in 2018.
We have lots of ideas for both organised and informal events, including:
- Welcome reception
- Evening MacIntyre Ceilidhs
- Bus tours of MacIntyre country
- Walking tours of Taynuilt
- Formal MacIntyre banquet dinner
- Hiking to the Stone of the Fatted Calf
- Gathering of the Clan at Glen Noe
- Taynuilt Highland Games
- Family group reunions
More information will be available soon regarding accommodation options, tours, events, costs, and a proposed schedule. A special feature of this Gathering is that we hope to encourage DNA testing in advance so we can reunite family groups that have been dispersed through social upheavals and emigration over the past several hundred years.
Sign up here to be kept up to date with our latest announcements, and to be the first to find out when registration opens!
