Clan Borthwick - Clan Association

The Home Coming 2009 and The Clan Gathering

Almost a year on, let us look back on two happy days spent in Holyrood Park, Edinburgh.

The sun shone as we welcomed Clan members and friends to our tent shared with Clan Lockhart.

The Borthwick Clan festivities started on the Thursday with a short Church service at Borthwick Church, conducted by the Minister, Graham Leach, followed by a tea party at Borthwick Castle for about 20 Clan members and friends.

The highlight of the weekend Gathering had to be the memorable march from Holyrood Palace up the Royal Mile finishing at the Castle Esplanade. Thousands of people turned out to cheer the Clans as they marched - the atmosphere was unforgettable.

We have great delight in posting some photos of the happy event.

There is a rumour that another International Gathering may be held in 2014. We hope to see as many of you as possible, and will keep you posted on details of events, as soon as plans are confirmed.
