Whether you are a clan member, planning a holiday in the area, or live locally, please join us for a weekend that celebrates the special heritage, culture, food and music of Strathlachlan by Loch Fyne, and the Cowal area. New Castle Lachlan is the home of 25th clan chief, Euan Maclachlan of Maclachlan, who will be pleased to welcome you to Strathlachlan.

So start planning your trip now and see one of the most beautiful parts of the United Kingdom, and take part in 3 days of activity and food, music, dancing, talks, and walks to historical sites around Lachlan Bay.
The Gathering and Festival are being organised by the Clan Maclachlan Society which has branches all around the world. We hope as many clan members as possible will be able to join the celebrations. You don’t have to be a Society member though. If your name is Maclachlan (there are lots of spellings!), Lachlan, Gilchrist, Claflin, Ewan, Ewing, MacEwan, or Lamont you are a member of our clan and will be made especially welcome.
The festival will highlight the ongoing conservation works at Old Castle Lachlan http://www.oldcastlelachlan.com/ through hard hat guided tours and historical talks.
