Clan Davidson 2018 Gathering, held in Aberdeen

Over 80 Clan Davidson members and their guests enjoyed a sociable weekend at our 2018 Gathering, which was held in Aberdeen in September.

Many different Davidson families have ancestors who originate from Aberdeen and North East Scotland and some of today's Clan Davidson Association members have extensive family links to this region.

Our Clan Chief Grant Davidson and his wife Brenda travelled from New Zealand to take part in our Gathering. Clan Pipe-Major, Lindsay Davidson, joined us from Poland and we welcomed members from Ireland, France, The Netherlands, Canada, USA, and Australia.

The weekend program included an informal meal on Friday night, after which members had great fun competing in a quiz. On Saturday morning, a group visited the Aberdeen Town House where Andrew Lawtie, Vice Lord-Lieutenant of Aberdeen, and the Town House Staff welcomed us and gave us a tour of the grand Reception Rooms.

After the AGM on Saturday afternoon, an illustrated talk about some important historic Davidson personalities from North East Scotland was given by Clan Genealogist, Nick Hide; this was followed by a presentation from Chris Davidson, who covered the Davidson connections with Aberdeen's Shipping and Maritime history.

At the formal Clan Dinner on Saturday evening, gift presentations were made to Clan Chief Grant Davidson, and to his wife Brenda, by Alan Lawtie on behalf of the Provost of Aberdeen, and by Clan Davidson Association President, Lord Davidson of Glen Clova.
The day concluded with entertainment and dancing.

Aberdeen has many attractions. The Maritime Museum overlooking the harbour provides a fascinating insight into the long history of this busy port. The Gordon Highlanders Museum links the history of this famous regiment with the region. Duthie Park alongside the River Dee is well worth a visit, and so is the area of Old Aberdeen with St Machar's Cathedral and the historic University Buildings.

In St Nicholas Kirk there is a memorial to Robert Davidson, Provost of Aberdeen, who was killed in the battle of Harlaw in 1411. Provost Davidson led out the Aberdeen forces to defend the city and he died in the confrontation, along with many hundreds of Scots from both sides of the battle. For more information see Commemoration of Provost Davidson at battle of Harlaw, 1411 in Past events

Inverness Highland Games, July 2018
The Clan Davidson Association took a stand in the clans tent at Bught Park, Inverness during the annual Inverness Highland Games. Some twenty different clans and local societies had stands inside a large tent, which is organised by the Association of Highland Clans & Societies.

Many overseas visitors to the games came to talk to clan representatives at the stands to find out more about Scottish family history. The Clan Davidson stand was visited by a group of French bikers, one of whom was a Davidson, and wearing a Davidson tartan kilt.
