The Menzies Clan Society (MCS)

is based at Castle Menzies, outside the small village of Weem, Perthshire in the Highlands of Scotland. Originally formed on 6 October, 1892, the present day MCS was re-established in 1957, after ceasing operation throughout 2 World Wars.

In 1957 the Society also purchased Castle Menzies which had become very neglected and run down. Since then the Castle has been lovingly restored by generations of the Society’s members and in 1993 was placed into a charity, the Menzies Charitable Trust, now The Castle Menzies SCIO (TCMS).  The Society and TCMS continually work together, side by side, to maintain the Society’s and Clan Menzies ancestral roots within Castle Menzies.

MCS members are involved in various projects within the Society, including Friends of Castle Menzies (FOCM), the annual Menzies Clan Gathering, Menzies Society Publications, Menzies Society Social Media & MenZiesGenZ Youth Initiative, Menzies DNA and Genealogical Family Research and educational photographic and video documentary projects focusing on the history of generations of Menzies and the historic Castle Menzies.
