Today I received my invitation to the Friends of the Clan Maclean Heritage Trust reception. If you are going to the Clan Gathering, this is not to be missed. It will be at Gruiline House, Isle of Mull. Last time we went to the Clan gathering, we were invited to attend the reception at Torloisk House. Richard and Lucinda Compton Maclean of Torloisk hosted the reception and what a lovely time. Their home is one of the Maclean estates and we had the run of the place.
The reception in 2007 followed the unveiling of a Cairn to General Allan Maclean at Kilninian Church. The unveiling started with the different sects of the Clan, all dressed in their particular tartan, piped to the cairn. It was very colorful and rather impressive to see all those who had gathered, being lead to the church.
