2021 Clan Gathering

OVERVIEW of the MENZIES CLAN SOCIETY GATHERING.

The Menzies Clan Society’s main event for our Members is our Annual Clan Gathering at Castle Menzies. There has been an annual Gathering held every year since 1957 when the parents of our present Chief, David R. Stueart Menzies of Menzies, held the first meeting and resurrected the Menzies Clan Society. This meeting took the decision to buy Castle Menzies. All are welcome!
