|Clan Davidson returns to the Scottish Central Highlands, |
|Aviemore, in the heart of the Cairngorm National Park, was the venue for this year's Clan Davidson Gathering. Clan members, their families and friends, travelled from many locations, some as far afield as South Africa, to be with us. This part of the Central Highlands is one of the most scenic regions of Scotland, and as the leaves on the trees turned to russet autumn tints, Clan members enjoyed a very sociable weekend, and took advantage of the mild, sunny October weather to explore local attractions.|
Our weekend began with an informal meal on Friday evening, providing a chance to make new friends, and greet old acquaintances. On Saturday afternoon, Clan members enjoyed an illustrated talk about Davidson connections and family history in the area, followed in the evening by a formal Clan dinner with entertainment from local musicians.Throughout the weekend, our Clan Genealogist & Historical Researcher was kept busy talking to many attendees about their Davidson family histories.
The Highlands are well known as one of the key ancestral homelands for the Clan Davidson. During the weekend, a number of Clan members took the opportunity to drive to Tulloch Castle, home of former Chiefs of Clan Davidson. A permanent display of Davidson pictures, genealogical information, and artefacts is housed in the Clan Davidson Room at Tulloch Castle, where visitors can browse our collection and sign our visitor book.
