Annan hosts the first major Clan Gathering in the region for over twenty-five years on Saturday 24th. August.
Organised by the Annan History Town Group, it promises to be a major attraction, bringing visitors from as far away as South Africa, America and Canada. Early bird tickets now available – save money. EBT only £5 per adult with up to 3 accompanied children free.
It is envisaged that there could be as many as seven clans represented at the event, taking place at the Everholm Sports Track. Local clan chieftains including Armstrong, Carruthers and Irving are looking forward to discussing clan history with visitors to their marquees.
