A Welcome Message from the Chief

The August Gathering this year in 2018 was a great success. Attendance was up, and there was a very convivial atmosphere. It was also great to see the young ones dancing.

Speaking of young ones, the musicians Feis Spe, who entertained us before dinner, were excellent and we must continue to encourage them. I am reliably informed that there were 66 people in attendance at the dinner.

How nice to see members from as far away as New Zealand, USA and Australia, as well as Austria and Germany. I would like to thank everyone who made the long and I know expensive trip North. I feel this bodes well for our International Gathering in 2020.

All that remains is to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a peaceful and happy New Year.

Sláinte Mhath and Stand Fast!


The Rt. Hon Sir James Grant of Grant, The 6th Lord Strathspey, Baronet of Nova Scotia, 33rd Chief of Grant
