For those who would like to celebrate their Scottish roots, there will be an International Gathering of the Clans to be held in conjunction with the event Bannockburn 700, June 24th, 2014. This will be 700 years after Robert the Bruce defeated the forces of Edward II of England at the Battle of Bannockburn. For more information:

I see Clan Gordon will have a tent there. Hoping some of my other ancestral families (Bruce, Douglas, Stewart, Johnston, etc.) will be in attendance. Sounds like a great excuse for a research trip/second honeymoon!

Until later,

My trip to Scotland was supposed to happen after my graduation, but I couldn't get anyone to go with me then. I'm really hoping to make the trip in 2014!!

There's an update on the Gathering. For now, it's OFF. Very, very sad to hear this.
