The Fergus Scottish Festival is proud to host over 50 Clan Societies, who will help you understand the clan system and your clan in particular. If you are wearing highland dress, you are welcome to participate with your clan.
Our honoured chieftain this year, the Right Honourable Lord Lyon, looks forward to meeting with all the clan members.
Chief Stephen Edward Dugald MacTavish of Dunardry and his clan invite any individuals in highland dress whose clan is not represented at the festival to join them at their tent and in all festivities.
