Clan News



Each night, the Chiefs of two Clans and their supporters will march onto the Castle Esplanade.

If you would like to be part of this Gathering (Our allotted date - 17th AUGUST 2017) can you please let us know as soon as possible and preferably before 1st December 2016, as we are able to purchase tickets before that date. We shall try and purchase reasonably priced tickets, but if anyone would like more expensive ones (over £100) please let us know ASAP.

We appreciate this is short notice, and does not give overseas visitors much time to plan, but we have just been notified about this exciting opportunity.

The Clan Chiefs are delighted with the idea of taking part in this world famous Event.

It was with great sadness that we heard of the death of Angus Hew Lockhart of the Lee, Chief of Clan Lockhart on 20th November 2015. Angus died unexpectedly at home with his wife, Su at his side. Following a private family cremation a service of thanksgiving for his life was held at Biggar Kirk on 3rd December. The Borthwick family would like to offer their sincere condolences to the Lockhart family and members of Clan Lockhart.

It is easy now for Clansmen to keep in touch via the internet. The initial costs of setting up the Clan Web site has been solely financed by the Chief. It is hoped that sales of merchandise, which will be available through the Borthwick Bazaar, will help to finance future additions to the site and other expenses. So far, no money has been taken from the small bank balance of the Association, which has been accruing a tiny amount of interest for some years. This money will be solely used for any expenses occurring in the running costs of the Association, e.g. the printing of Clan Certificates. These expenses will be recorded and available for perusal by Clan members. Future gatherings and social events will be on a pay-as-you-go basis. Membership to the Association will be free, but of course donations will be very welcome.
