The Gathering 2020
The next Clan Farquharson Gathering will take place 11-14 August 2020 and will be accessible to all active members of Clan Farquharson UK and of all Clan Farquharson Societies overseas. An exciting programme of events is currently being prepared and will be announced shortly, however please note that key events will include:
11th August Meet & Greet
12th August Ceremony at the Clan Cairn
13th August Ballater Highland Games
14th August AGM & Clan Dinner (Ballater)
Dinner will be limited to 130 guests so please book early. It is anticipated that Braemar Castle, seat of Clan Farquharson, may be undergoing restoration work in 2021, so 2020 is an important year to visit before the castle becomes obscured by scaffolding and closes during the renovations. The additional events being considered include visits to Braemar Castle, Mar Lodge and Royal Lochnagar Distillery, as well as Nature Walks, 4×4 excursions, a family day and a theatrical performance. For those attending for the first time, most people tend to base themselves in or around Ballater where they can also enjoy the town’s Victoria Week.
More details to follow soon,
Thank you for your patience.
