We get a lot of questions about a lot of things related to Clan Gregor, tartans, and Scotland. Here are some of the most common. This list will be updated periodically, so please check here first to see if your questions has already been answered.

Q. Is there a Gathering this year?

A. Yes, there is a Gathering, in July each year, where we take part in the fabulous Lochearnhead Highland Games. This year’s gathering is on 22 July 2017…………. Every 4-5 years, we organise a 10 day International Gathering with tours round Scotland taking in the Lochearnhead Games, as well. These events are just great.  – NB. We are holding an International Gathering in 2018 so please visit the Gathering News page often for more information. (You can also use the search box – and the Site Map on the Home Page for information).

Qa. My ancestor’s surname is XXXXX and it’s on your Sept name list. Does that mean I’m a MacGregor?
Qb. I’ve heard from family members that we’re related to the MacGregors. Does that mean I’m a MacGregor?

A. The answer is ‘maybe.” It depends on a lot of other factors and as much of your family history that you can supply. We have a lot of genealogical experts who frequent our forum and who might be able to help you. Please post all your details and questions there.

Q. Are the four approved Clan Gregor tartans available from, or through you?

A. We have some poly-viscose (a polyester/cotton mix) lightweight tartan available in MacGregor of Cardney or Red MacGregor. We do not sell any wool tartan. Our four tartan patterns are usually available from most kilt makers and weavers. We don’t have a special agreement with any of them.

Q. I live in XXXXXX and I’m interested in becoming a member. Is there a chapter near me?

A. All of our active chapters are listed in the Chapter Directory. Please contact the closest one to your location or our membership chairperson.

    Hi comrades. My family are Greig’s living in Australia since after WW2, but are definitely from Kirkwall, Orkney Islands going back to about 1720, then nothing. I see we are a Sept clan, but is it possible we were MacGregors prior to this time? Family oral history has carried this theory down to us, but have no way to verify it at present. Anyway, happy to join Clan Gregor! Cheers, Richard Greig, Australia.

    Good morning. A question you will have been asked millions of times..
    how do you actually pronounce the Gaelic version of the clan motto?
    My son is getting married to a lovely American girl and it would be great to be able to let them know (me as well). Many thanks
