Past Clan Gathering, Scotland 2009

The Oliphant Clan held a Scottish Gathering which coincided with the Homecoming Event in Edinburgh during 2009.

Our own Gathering began on the 20th July 2009 and ended on Friday the 31st July 2009.

During our own gathering there were daily visits to historic Oliphant sites and castles in some of the following places: Linlithgow, Broxburn, The Scottish Borders, Arniston, Bothwell, Ayrshire, Gask, Dupplin, Aberdalgie, Kellie, Crail, Stirling, Forgandenny, Condie, Rossie, Strathallan, Edinburgh and, of course, Culloden where we found our Clan insignia stone in place at the new visitor information center.

The evening will saw holding ceilidh's, barbeques and lots of other social events.

In the middle of the two weeks we had a Clan tent at the 'Homecoming Scotland 2009' Gathering of the Clans Event in Edinburgh which ran between the 25th & 26th of July and included such events as a Clan parade, convention and pageant to live music, piping and Highland dancing.
