Welcome to Clan Gillean USA, a member of Clan Maclean International. This is a place for Macleans in the United States to connect with other kin, clan, and family.
We work hard to preserve and share the history of our ancient clan and the genealogical records of its members; we also take pride in continuing the traditions, music, and stories of Macleans throughout the world. Many members volunteer to represent the Macleans at Scottish games and gatherings throughout the United States. Occasionally we host special events such as galas, ceilidhs, and other get-togethers. We hope you join us for one!
We invite you to join us and connect with the ancient world-wide Maclean family.
In an effort to recognize donors the Chief has introduced donor categories which for your convenience have been converted to USD*. As all donations are important to restoring the Castle, it will be the Chief’s pleasure to thank donors in writing.
For those who have reached one of the following Donor Recognition levels the Chief will be pleased to present them their badge (pin) during the week of June 20-24, 2017 at The International Gathering of Clan Maclean. For those who are unable to attend, their badge (pin) and associated benefit will be mailed after the ceremony.
